Goodnight Scrub and Morganville residents are isolated only a few weeks after water receded from ex-cyclone Oswald.

Perry River Bridge is underwater with over 5 metres of floodwater emptying into a rising Burnett River.

Students are again unable to get to school, parents to work, while still recovering from the last weather event a few short weeks ago.

Information from Bureau of Meteorology is that Burnett River levels are expected to remain below minor in Bundaberg, further rainfall is possible and closely monitored.

Paradise Dam reached almost 3 metres above the spillway, just short of a moderate reading with more water still to come down from the Burnett River Catchment.
