The Gayndah-Mt Perry road will remain closed at Mt Perry, crews will assess the road condition as soon as possible.

Council is aware that there are still some isolated properties in the broader region and thanks all agencies for their assistance with a rescue, Saturday 14 May 2022.

Please let Council know if you have been impacted by the rain event or subsequent flooding.  This information assists the LDMG with planning and reviewing procedures and stations, as well as funding opportunities.  

If you are a primary producer and suffered from any flood damage, please remember to take date-stamped photographs. Should you experience any damage or losses to your property, we encourage you to fill in our Natural Disaster Impact Survey to help us understand the scale of any impacts.

If anyone would like to donate to those impacted by the recent weather event, please do so through Givit.

The LDMG and Council extend thanks to all agencies, staff and volunteers for their efforts and preparedness related to this event.  Members of the community placed signs out in remote locations, provided live time updates and undertook a range of proactive activities, ensuring community safety and wellbeing.
