With our wet weather comes the potential for cyclones and we urge those new to the region and remind those that aren't, to undertake preparation on this front as sometimes on an announcement of a severe weather warning our shop shelves become depleted of food stores, batteries, torches and other essential items, so it's best to stock up on these early and be prepared.
Our Environment & Emergency Operations Officer has identified some publications that might be of assistance to you during this season. Please note these publications are not produced by Council so please contact individual organisations directly should you require any further clarification.

Additional information on caring for your pets is available from Council here. In the event of a cyclonic event we will endeavor to keep you updated via our website. So please check back for building closures and post event clean ups.
You can also find a preparation and safety checklist on the Bureau of Meterology (BOM) website to assist in your planning www.bom.gov.au. This site is a great resource for tracking weather during these events and tune into your local radio station that also provides regular updates.
