WEATHER conditions in the past week played havoc with transport and communication lines in the Whitsundays.
One flight to the Whitsunday Coast Airport was cancelled because of the wet weather.
Hamilton Plains and Gregory-Cannon Valley Road at Crofton Creek were closed on Sunday night but re-opened on Monday morning.
The Bruce Highway was closed to traffic north of Goorganga Creek on Monday for the majority of the morning, but later one lane was re-opened until the water subsided off the side of the road.
Businesses also had problems with phone and internet connections, including Ray White Whitsunday that has had phone problems since the weekend.
Principal Mark Beale said a power surge on Saturday night blew out the phone system.
"We have been operating on mobile phones ever since," he said.
"It is a big inconvenience to the business."
Communications manager for Ergon Energy Bob Pleash said Ergon had not experienced any major issues on the network but some customers may have had some "trip and re-close" activity.
A two car collision happened on Sunday afternoon out the front of the Whitsunday Business Centre due to the slippery road conditions.
One car was towed but neither driver sustained injuries.
Whitsunday Coast Airport recorded the highest rainfall tally of 373.8mm for the week bringing the monthly total for February to 607mm.
Hamilton Island - 158.4mm for week, 350.4mm for month
Whitsunday Coast Airport - 373.8mm for week, 607mm for month
