8.15am: THERE are reports motorists are being directed through from Gayndah to Mundubbera by police.

The Burnett Highway, which runs between the two towns, was cut due to a landslide on the Binjour Range.

Also, Deputy Premier Jeff Seeney and Local Government Minister David Crisafulli will visit flood affected communities in the Wide Bay Burnett including Monto, Gayndah, Kingaroy and Gympie today.

2.20pm Tuesday: IT'S a town that appears to be forgotten by the state, but is severely impacted by the flood.

Residents of Mundubbera, along the Burnett River, have taken to social media to get their voices heard as half the towns' houses are under water and there are reports of 400 head of cattle lost.

There are reports the town is without power and could be that way for up to two weeks as all roads in and out are cut.

And with the power out, there is limited phone service until the power is fixed.

One report was the water had gone three metres higher than the 2010/11 flood.

On 28 December 2010 the Burnett River peaked at 18.9 metres, the highest since the record of 23.6 metres in 1942.
