AUTHORITIES are pleading with Gold Coasters to stay indoors as a 'very high risk' severe storm tracks toward the city bringing up to 500mm of rain and 125km/h winds this afternoon.

Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk announced schools will remain closed again tomorrow as the vicious tail end of ex tropical cyclone Debbie lashes the Gold Coast.

Gold Coast Health has also cancelled all non-essential services tomorrow including elective surgery and outpatient appointments.

"We need people to stay off the roads. Please stay indoors," said Ms Palaszczuk.

Queensland Police commissioner Ian Stewart warned 'this system is not over yet'

"We cannot allow our communities to become complacent," he said.

"We ask people to be patient, stay safe, help each other and listen to the official alerts and warnings."

Meanwhile, the iconic Robina cows who were stranded on an 'island' surrounded by floodwaters have been saved from flash flooding.

They were moved to higher ground on Carrara Markets vacant land after a video posted by the Gold Coast Bulletin went viral.
