Damage and debris remain on flooded Targinnie roads

IT will be a long road to recovery for some Targinnie residents, with Targinnie Rd and many connecting streets in a poor state following the weekend's floods.

Debris stretches far down the main road, while some parts remain under water.

Some cars that failed to make it through the floodwaters can be found on a long stretch of road leading into Targinnie.

A few people made it a short distance down Targinnie Rd in the hope of climbing Mt Larcom.

But most turned away when they arrived at the gushing water just past the Targinnie suburb border.

Some brave residents who decided to try their luck in the rough conditions arrived home for the first time since Friday.

The damage to Targinnie properties is minimal, and the heat from the strong Gladstone sun is quickly drying out the rain-soaked land.
