most recent warnings
Some people affected by Cyclone Debbie say they are frustrated they have not been able to return to their damaged properties in north Queensland.
As emergency services build a picture of the destruction wrought by Cyclone Debbie, 61,000 remain without power and Mackay may have only 24 hours of clean water remaining.
South-east Queensland is set for a drenching on Thursday with rainfall in excess of 200 millimetres possible in some localised areas, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has warned.
