If it's flooded, forget it. Realise that your best plan may be to avoid travel altogether and that sometimes your only option will be to wait it out – in your car, visiting a friend nearby, or spending time at a shopping centre or food outlet – be prepared for all options.

BOM has issued a Flood Watch for the Gulf of Carpentaria, south Cape York Peninsula and coastal catchments from Cape Tribulation to Rainbow Beach - Issued at 12:48 pm EST on Friday 14 December 2018 - Flood Watch Number: 7 - Flooding is likely across parts of the Flood Watch area over the weekend and into next week. Heavy rainfall associated with Tropical Cyclone Owen is expected across the Cape York Peninsula and Gulf coast on Friday. Rainfall will develop over the North Tropical Coast from early Saturday morning and extend southeast through coastal catchments over the weekend, though there is some uncertainty around how far south the system will move and the accompanying heavier rainfall.

Further south, locally heavy falls are likely from showers and storms over the next few days.
Recent rainfall across the Flood Watch area has primed some catchments ahead of the expected rainfall.
Minor flooding is likely across parts of the Flood Watch area, with moderate to major flooding possible in catchments that receive the heaviest rainfall.

Heavy rainfall may also lead to local flooding.

The situation will be closely monitored and Flood Warnings issued when required.
Catchments likely to be affected include:
Settlement Creek
Nicholson River
Leichhardt River
Lower Flinders River
Norman River
Gilbert River
Coleman and Edward Rivers
Mitchell River
Staaten River
Daintree River
Mossman River
Barron River
