Many of our residents were hard hit by the rain event on Monday 14 November and subsequent storms, which resulted in significant flood damage and distress.
 
Across the Shire, there have been 270 calls to the SES from people affected by flood and high winds, many of whose homes were inundated.
 
There were landslips in several locations, in some instances residents were evacuated and roads closed. The safety of our community is always our first priority and we are working hard to assist those in need, assess damage and begin repairs and recovery.
 
So far we have contacted more than 190 of these affected residents with 28 referrals to the Department of Families, Fairness and Housing for Personal Hardship Payments and several others referred to other agencies.
