Disaster dashboards in Queensland
Local councils are the first point of call Queenslanders should turn to for information and direction at the time of a natural disaster. In preparation for storm, cyclone and bushfire seasons, many councils will be out and about running events, pop-up information stalls and other activities to help their community Get Ready for when the next major weather event occurs.
Queensland’s local council websites and disaster dashboards provide important information to support local communities during and after disaster events. The disaster dashboards include information about: evacuation centre openings and locations; river heights; road conditions and closures; power and phone outages; and helpful contacts. You can also sign up for local weather alerts and other support information on many council websites.
