FOUR PEOPLE were killed in floods after torrential rain hit the coast of Australia's tropical Queensland state yesterday.

The heaviest floods struck the town of Gympie, 180km (110 miles) north of Brisbane, where the Mary River burst its banks.

Gympie was nearly totally immersed in floodwater yesterday with the river peaking at nearly 22m (72ft), the highest level since 1893.
