SES still busy
STATE Emergency Service volunteers have again been battling Mother Nature’s fury across North Queensland.
The SES received several calls for leaky roofs and also returned to a number of properties affected by Cyclone Yasi to do temporary roof repairs or re-adjust tarpaulins.
Volunteers conducted doorknocks in Cardwell and assisted people who had sustained flood damage to clean up their homes and helped prepare for further flooding by lifting furniture to higher ground.
Crews from Cairns yesterday assisted in Cardwell while a South Australian taskforce concentrated their efforts in the Mission Beach area.
Anyone requiring flood assistance is urged to contact the SES on 132 500 but in a life-threatening emergency call 000.
