Agree WiseOldOwl, the QLD premier is all over the news BEFORE disaster strikes. We got nothing until after it had hit! Sure they said the weather would be bad but did not warn of cyclonic conditions which obviously threaten life. Two more just died poor things. It's great there are storm chasing websites but I don't check those, when it's only once in 10 years this happens. I rely on the abc and our state govt.

Yeah I know Little Ted. The warnings should have come earlier! I felt nervous driving to work yesterday in what looked like an apocalyptic scene and I was feeling all nervous about maybe being late because of the trees all over the roads and road blocks. Stupid work did not decide to close for the day until mid morning. Even though the workplace was flooded by 7am. I could not have made it there even if they stayed open. I was due to start at 8am so left home at 7. By the time I got turned around at a road block and home again by 8.30, there were emergency warnings on the radio telling people to stay home. Next time I will just take it upon myself not to go in and use my own judgement rather than relying on the authorities. I won't care if work are miffed. Look at the poor people who are dying in this weather event. It's not worth it.

I guess those warnings only go to the people in flood prone areas but it would be nice to be informed about whats happening and what's expected to happen. That only came in the evening news last night. I didn't see any regular updates before our power went out.

I live on a hill that if we flooded - 90% of of the city would have to be under water too so I think it goes out to more than just the homes in flood zones but I'm not sure how they assess and access which numbers it goes out to.
Edit: just read the information online to answer the question I had here.
