Sighs of relief as rain eases over the region

THREE-year-old Sophie Hagan took to the streets of Warwick to inspect the flood damage with an over-sized umbrella and infectious smile - enough to make light of a devastating situation.

But while she enjoyed the downpour, many are thankful the rain has eased off, after a whopping 610.4mm fell at The Head from Thursday until yesterday and 510mm at Carrs Lookout - which was then pushed through the entire region in waves.

Meteorologist at the Bureau of Meteorology David Bernard said the region copped the following millimetres of rain in the 24 hours to 9am yesterday:

Killarney: 10mm

The Head: 28mm

Warwick: 13mm

Maryvale: 34mm

Warwick: 132mm

Goomburra: 19mm

Pratten: 18mm

Leyburn: 20mm

Allora: 22mm

Dalveen: 21mm
