Brisbane Lord Mayor Adrian Schrinner says there are power outages, trees down and flooding on roads across the city as wild rain and wind lashes south-east Queensland.

Queensland has been hit with torrential rain in some areas and experienced wild conditions over the weekend.

“There have been power outages across a number of suburbs; that’s mainly due to branches falling on power lines and impacting supply,” he told Luke Grant.

“We have had quite a few trees down around Brisbane … and a┬ábit of flooding on roadways and on creeks.

“To this point, in the last 24 hours, we have had in different parts of Brisbane, up to 86mm of rain.”

He said this morning rain was “pelting down” and more was on the way over the coming days.

“We are not out of the woods yet.”

Major coastal erosions have been reported, particularly in Byron Bay.

He said severe weather warnings were in place for parts of northern NSW.
