Queensland's May heavy rain causes road closures across Brisbane, rest of state

Heavy rainfall across Queensland is once again causing havoc on roads with many closed due to flooding.

Education Minister Grace Grace said 69 state schools were shut on Friday, and another four independent schools were closed, mainly due to road closures restricting access to schools. Check school closures here.

It comes as Queensland communities are on high alert - bracing for floods for the third time this year, with Laidley's CBD already flooded and parts of Gympie bracing for possible inundation.

More than a dozen alerts have been issued from North Burnettt to the NSW border as the trough that dumped heavy rain on the north and west of the state moves south.
