It may be up to a week before the remnants of the monsoon storm are out of the way and will start carrying on with normal life again
Storm surge is possible in flood plains where storm surge is expected to reach 10 metres at its greatest on Thursday morning.
The city of Gatton, on the north-western shores of the Gulf Stream, will also be affected by the storm surge caused by the remn우리카지노ants of the monsoon on Friday.
But the north of Queensland is not expected to be hit directly by the storm surge caused by the remnants of the monsoon, with the Storm Power Warning (SWA) extending into the lower waters.
A Storm Surge Warning has been in force since Tuesday (local time).
In the City of Gatton, around 75 kilometres away, residents had to evacuate ahead of the storm and some of them were evacuated last night.
Residents were evacuated into shelters and at least seven police helicopters flew over the city’s centre.
A woman was injured in the storm and emergency services were called to the roof of the house which she had moved into, where they were able to restore life.
Police said there were about three people on the roofs of houses which were surrounded by trees and cars.
There are no warnings for the rest of the region from the SWA and the storm will pass into waters of about 15 metres.
The SWA is set to remain in effect for a few more days before easing into the coast to the south.
«The weather agency advises that in some areas, there will be rain showers, but otherwise we are looking at moderate rain with possible flood plains,» SA Environment Minister Scott Emerson said.
People are told to 우리카지노make preparati바카라사이트ons now for the possibility of a major bushfire if they are in affected areas, while more than 100 road closures are expected for inland road users.
Mr Emerson said people should contact bushfire officials if they have any concerns or questions.
«Some roads may see an immediate increase in congestion as the Storm Power Warning continues, but this can be dealt with immediately whe
