Supply fears for flood isolated CherbourgThursday February 28, 2013 - 12:35 EDT
The Cherbourg Aboriginal Shire Council, in southern Queensland's South Burnett, says supplies have been a concern with the town once again isolated by floodwaters.
Council CEO Warren Collins says most people stocked up but some did not expect the town to be cut off for long.
He says they are hoping access is restored sometime today.
"They're a bit tired of the rain and the floods because these have been fairly significant flooding events that we've had," he said.
"They're huge. We don't normally see this amount of water come through."
He says supplies have been a concern.
"Well people rely on each other here," he said.
"Some people have been able to get into Murgon. Our biggest problem is at Murgon, because Murgon's isolated as well from all directions, the shops may run out of supplies as well."
Meanwhile, western Queensland is set to get some welcome rain.
The weather bureau is predicting falls of up to 50 millimetres across the Maranoa, Warrego and south-west today.
Forecaster Sam Campbell says thunderstorms could dump even more rain in some parts.
"Places likely to be affected, Charleville, Thargomindah Cunnamulla and Roma today and by tomorrow the peak of the activity will shift ... focusing around Roma," he said.
