ISAAC Regional Council has updated recommended action for people living between Cardwell and St Lawrence.

In a statement the council warns, "heavy rain with potential for severe flash flooding is expected to develop in parts of the northern and central Queensland coast and inland later today through to Tuesday.”

"Widespread daily rainfall totals of 200 mm, with isolated falls of 400 mm, is likely to lead to major river flooding next week, and a Flood Watch is current for coastal catchments from Cardwell and Gladstone,” the statement reads.

The council also advises recommended action for people between Cardwell and St Lawrence, and inland to Collinsville.

People living in the areas should, "immediately commence or continue preparations, especially securing boats and property.”
