THE tiny town of Stanwell, 26km west of Rockhampton, is beginning to see things return to normal after flash floods devastated the community on January 25.
12.05pm UPDATE: Floodwater in Rockhampton is expected to drop to 8m by Monday after peaking at the major flood level of 8.6m overnight.
MANY flood-affected people have been left wondering how they are going to pay for essential items to get them through this time.
LAST weekend's flash floods were a first time experience for Jolene Elly and her four children, after living in the town for just over a year.
