As of 9.30am Friday, predictions are for strong, gusty winds, possible tree damage and power outage so be prepared.
If you need SES assistance for property damage call 132 500.
Heavy rain is our biggest threat with local floods, in low lying areas.
So far we have distributed more than 10,000 sand bags. Residents can access bags from SES depots at 26-36 Winnetts Rd, Daisy Hill, until 5.30pm today and 1464 Waterford-Tamborine Rd, Logan Village, from noon to 5.30pm. Please note residents will need to fill their own sandbags. If this is not possible, please contact the SES on 132 500 to make alternative arrangements.
With heavy rain upon us, we encourage residents minimise non-essential travel.
Logan City Council has received reports of water over the road at the intersection of German Church Road and Erwin Road, Carbrook.
