Torrential rain continues to create havoc throughout the Bundaberg region.
A LACK of forethought in town planning came under fire during the first day of the Bundaberg hearings of the Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry.
BUNDABERG district disaster management group chairman superintendent Rowan Bond said 380 houses have been affected by floodwaters.
North Bundaberg residents asked to evacuate as floods set to isolate the area.
UPDATE: THE Burnett River has peaked at 7m overnight in Bundaberg with more water on its way.
UP TO 200 homes may be flooded up to their floorboards this morning, as the Burnett River is expected to peak at 7.5 metres — the worst in nearly 70 years.
