BOM has increased their level of confidence on modelling for the Burnett River with a minor flood level predicted, however the Local Disaster Management Group are still actively monitoring the situation and will provide an update at approximately 12 noon.

Significant rainfall is still occurring across the region causing flash flooding therefore residents are reminded to please stay of the roads.

Remember: If it’s flooded, forget it. For flood emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500. For life threatening emergencies, call Triple Zero (000) immediately.

Information on North Burnett Regional Council council controlled road closures can be found on Council’s Website at www.northburnett.qld.gov.au. Residents are urged to take road closures seriously and not to attempt to cross flooded roads -even a small amount of water is enough to sweep a large vehicle off the road.

In a life-threatening emergency, which includes vehicles trapped in floodwater people are urged to call triple zero (000) immediately.

For storm and flood related assistance contact the State Emergency Service on 132 500.
