Those interested in weather and the freakish stuff here is the storm report for the event a couple of weeks ago. All duration period records were broken during that event at the Teewah gauge.

How to read: The duration isn't continual. It is the maximum amount of rainfall recorded during any 6, 10, 20 minute period. The time and date are when that period started.
