Types of Disasters
The City of Logan’s subtropical climate and diverse landscape means our city is vulnerable to the threat of natural disasters. Disasters can happen any time of the year and some of the most common hazards Logan is prone to include:
- Severe weather (storms, cyclones, east coast lows)
Whilst Council aims to minimise the effects of a disaster on the Logan community through prevention, preparedness, response and recovery, it is important to understand your risk and take action to prepare for and minimise the potential impacts to your family, pets and home.
The Bureau of Meteorology provides a monthly Climate Outlook on their website. This outlook includes information on the likelihood of the next three months being wetter or drier and warmer or cooler than usual, in a number of different formats, such as maps and videos.
