Devastation as CMC Rocks camps washed away

FESTIVAL-goers have taken to social media to show off their ruined campsites in what has been a rocky start to the much-anticipated CMC Rocks.

There's no relief in sight either, with the outlook for today and tomorrow much the same.

BOM meteorologist Michael Gray said Amberley had 43mm and Rosewood had 36mm overnight.

"There's still a good chance of showers and storms through the wider south-east, there's the possibility of storms again," he said.

"Ipswich is right on the edge of the hotspot we're thinking about today.

"There are possible heavy falls in some of those thunderstorms and pretty similar for tomorrow."
