Logan Early Warning

We have teamed up with the Early Warning Network to provide residents and businesses with free early warning alerts for:

  • potentially severe weather
  • bushfires
  • flood notifications.

The Logan Early Warning service allows you to plan, prepare for and respond to severe weather events before they happen.

The Logan Early Warning service will help you to become familiar with potential hazards and risks that may affect our city. It encourages you to take early action to reduce any potential damage that may occur during severe weather.
