Man Rescued From Causeway

Storms Lead To Flash Flooding In Gold Coast Hinterland

Swift water rescue crews responded to 11 incidents overnight as a fierce storm swept across the south east.

One man had to be pulled from his car after driving across a flooded causeway in Clagiriba around 10 o'clock..

He was stranded on Beaudesert-Nerang Road for almost two hours before he could be pulled safely back to dry land.

Queensdland Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford is tearing is hair out today - frustrated by the number of people choosing to drive through flood water.

He says drivers are putting themselves and emergency workers' lives in danger by making poor judgement calls.
