FULL LIST: Roads flooded, traffic lights out as heavy rain lashes the Gold Coast

Gold Coast motorists are being urged to take it easy on the roads this mornings, with heavy rain and damaging winds continuing to wreak havoc across the city.

A number of streets across the coast have been impacted by flash flooding and debris, which is only predicted to get worse as the day goes on.

The state’s peak motoring body is reminding drivers to remember to turn on their headlights and to drive with caution and to conditions.


While Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate is urging people to stay off the roads all together, and try and work from home today if possible.
