SES still busy

Townsville Bulletin - - Inside Today -

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.
