Queensland is on alert with more heavy rain expected from the Sunshine Coast down to the NSW border.

Overnight on Sunday, emergency workers responded to 300 calls for assistance mostly related to water inundation and falling trees.

“This weather event will hang around for the next three days,” QFES coordinator Brian Cox told Nine on Monday.

“The ground is already saturated so the risk of flooding is quite high.”

The Sunshine Coast is forecast to see more than 150mm of rain in the next two days on top of the very intense storm activity over the weekend in the state’s east.

“It might not be as intense as our NSW colleagues are feeling at the moment but nonetheless quite dangerous,” Mr Cox said.
