Some people affected by Cyclone Debbie say they are frustrated they have not been able to return to their damaged properties in north Queensland.
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.
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.
