Severe weather update - 4pm, Friday 20 February

A statement from City of Logan Mayor and Logan Local Disaster Management Group Chairperson, Councillor Pam Parker:

The heavy rain continues in the City of Logan this afternoon and is expected to continue overnight.

Road closures

We anticipate that more local roads will close as a result of the rain and will be updating our road closure list throughout the night.

We encourage residents to keep checking our road closures page for the latest information.

With heavy rain and winds impacting our city, we suggest to our residents that they minimise non-essential travel.

Letterbox drops to residents

Additionally, we are providing special weather information update letters to residents in Bayes Rd and Schmidts Rd, Logan Reserve, and at Princess St, Marsden, this afternoon as a precautionary measure.

These areas are known trouble spots and we anticipate that residents may either be cut off or, in a small number of cases, be at risk of over-floor flooding from local creek flood tonight. Whether that situation eventuates will depend entirely on the distribution and quantity of rain overnight and we will be monitoring this closely in case further action is required from the Logan Local Disaster Management Group.
