Sun shines after Cyclone Tiffany brings heavy rain

THE Bureau of Meteorology says no significant rainfall is forecast for the next few days. The recent heavy rainfall (see photos below) is a good reminder that we are in cyclone season which can result in local flooding to streets, yards and in extreme events - homes.

📍 Craiglie - 356mm
📍 Port Douglas - 315mm
