Tropical Cyclone Owen has reintensified and is expected to be a major influence on local weather over the next few days. Here is Sunshine Coast Council Disaster Management Coordinator Cathy Buck to provide some background on what’s happening, what to expect, and how to stay safe and aware.
Wet and windy weather is headed for South East Queensland over the coming days with predictions of high rainfall and likely localised flooding. Watch Sunshine Coast Council’s Disaster Management Coordinator John Gallina for the latest on what we can expect and how we can prepare.
Don’t drive if you don’t have to and if it’s flooded, forget it. With more than 50 roads across the coast currently closed and heavy rainfall expected to continue over the next 24 hours, expect localised flash flooding to continue.
Unitywater CEO Jon Black has urged people to remain safe by avoiding flood waters and encouraged residents to ensure grates and drains connected to the sewer network on their property were cleared and unobstructed.
