Bungil Creek peaks at 5.5 metres

The Bungil Creek in Roma peaked overnight at 5.5 metres swallowing thoroughfares in the region.

The Carnarvon Highway south of Injune remains closed, while East Miscamble St, Knayers Ln and Burtons Rd are also inundated.

While water levels currently remain steady, it is anticipated that the water will recede this afternoon and into the evening.

The Maranoa River at Mitchell is currently steady at 0.514 metres - a 'below minor' flood class.

With the Bureau of Meteorology predicting showers and possible storms today and over the weekend, Maranoa Regional Council staff are continuing to monitor water levels across the region.

Another water level update will be provided by the council at 4.30pm this afternoon.

Residents are reminded to not drive through flood water - "if it's flooded, forget it".
