Please, go home now
RESIDENTS are being urged to stay home and keep off the roads as flash flooding continues throughout Bundaberg.
Traffic lights are out on Walker St and Barolin Sts as drivers try to navigate their way through the intersections.
Blamey and Vasey Sts and surrounding areas in Avenell Heights have taken a massive hit, with roofs damaged, powerlines destroyed and trampolines thrown up against power poles.
It is believed a mini tornado ripped through the area earlier today.
NewsMail reporter Ashley Clark was on scene and said it was "carnage".
"There are fences that have been ripped out of the ground and a massive trampoline has been blown into a power pole," she said.
"Sheds have also been twisted and mangled by high winds."
"I haven't seen anything like it."
Police have blocked parts of the area and emergency services crews are also attending a crash in the suburb.
Ms Clark said roads around town, including Targo and Maryborough Sts were "traffic chaos".
"Please, everyone just get home," she said.
"It isn't safe, we need to make the jobs of our emergency services easier."
