DESPITE a wet weekend in the region where rainfall has exceeded 100mm in parts, Gladstone's State Emergency Service (SES) hasn't received any calls apart from a few leaky roofs.

The Bureau of Meteorology's Gladstone radar collected a healthy 115mm this morning, while the Gladstone airport radar picked up 118mm.

But The Bureau said Gladstone has most likely received its fix, with rain expected to ease throughout the day.

Bureau meteorologist Michael Knetp said there was little chance of flash flooding, as "the rain's just not intense enough for flash flooding".

"It's more a steady sort of rainfall, and when you get the steady rainfall, there's much less risk of flooding," he said.

He said the rain has been widespread across the region, rather than "intense localised rain". 

No roads were listed as closed because of flash flooding on the Gladstone Regional Council's website.
