There are many roads closed after flooding around Cairns overnight:
- Kamerunga Road at Freshwater,
- Captain Cook Highway at Trinity Beach,
- Brown Street at Westcourt,
- Mulgrave Road at Earlville
- Low lying streets around Edmonton including Shaft and Farmer Streets.
The substantial overnight rainfall has also caused power cuts on the Northern Beaches and other suburbs, that are still to be repaired this morning.
