    Hi Anita,

    At this stage these roads have been evacuated:

    * Trinculo Place
    * Areas in Mowatt St
    * Forbes St
    * Anthill St
    * Collette St
    * Monaro St
    * Waniassa St
    * Atkinson st
    * Corinnia St

    We aren't aware of any roads being reopened in Queanbeyan, but the SES say late this afternoon things will clear up.
