The best time to prepare for a disaster is well before one is even on its way. Planning well means nothing is left to chance and that everyone knows what they need to do and where things are.
Because cyclones and floods are a part of life in the North, it’s easy to become complacent. Sadly, some people have perished in floods and cyclones because they were not prepared or did not follow the warnings.
This is an important resource with key contacts, flood height comparison charts for Ingham and Lower Herbert - Halifax, storm tide evacuation information, a list of local radio stations and some quick guides on how to prepare.
Keep it handy and hold on to it throughout this disaster season!
