The Moreton Bay Regional Council is urging all local residents to prepare for wet weather with predictions of heavy rainfall from today through to next week across South East Queensland.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, a warning was issued earlier today for severe thunderstorms, destructive wind, heavy rainfall and large hailstones.
“Moreton Bay Region residents should prepare for the possible impact of heavy rain over coming days,” Mayor Sutherland said.
“While the forecasted rain will be much appreciated, I can’t stress enough how important it is to prepare yourself, your family and your home.”
“Council will continue to work with the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) to closely monitor the impacts of predicted severe weather.”
“Be prepared for any local impacts and keep an eye on BoM’s weather warnings, radar images and rainfall gauges, which can be viewed on BoM’s website.”
“Roads and drainage crews and the SES will be on standby to monitor any potential impacts.”
“In the event of severe weather, please limit all non-essential travel and remember, if it’s flooded, forget it.”
