Pair found dead on boat off central Queensland

Two men have tragically died in a horror boating accident north of Yeppon overnight.

The bodies of the pair were found after people on board another boat saw the six-metre catamaran drifting near the mouth of Island Head Creek at Shoalwater around 11.30pm.

Water police were called and upon inspection officers found the Sailfish 3000 had suffered significant damage to the front, below the water line.

Police say early inquiries suggest “the boat has hit an object at speed and the two occupants have died as a result of the collision.”

They were the only people on board.

Investigations are ongoing.

Help on the way for Qld towns about to run out of water

The Premier has announced emergency water funding for drought-ravaged areas of the Granite Belt.

Annastacia Palaszczuk was in Stanthorpe today, which has also been impacted by bushfires in the last week on top of its ongoing water crisis.

The town faces running out of water by Christmas unless there’s significant rainfall, and there’s none on the horizon.

Critical water restrictions came into force at the start of the month, limiting residents to 100 litres per person, per day.

The bushfire emergency forced many residents to sacrifice what little water they had.

The State Government has today announced millions of dollars for infrastructure and to cart water into the town until the end of next year.

“These emergency funds will cover $2.4 million worth of water infrastructure, as well as costs to cart water,” Ms Palaszczuk said

“That’s an estimated $800,000 per month to cart 1.6 million litres of water in each day.

Around 34 truckloads of water will be sent to Stanthorpe each day.

The water will come from Connolly Dam in Warwick and taken to Storm King Dam.

“If the drought lifts and the wet season delivers enough water, then the carting will no longer be needed,” Ms Palaszczuk said.

The Premier today met with emergency services workers in Stanthorpe, praising them and the community for their resilience.

Qld fire, cyclone seasons ‘could collide’

Queensland’s bushfire and cyclone seasons could collide later this year as the state cops a battering from climate change, the Palaszczuk government has warned.

Emergency Services Minister Craig Crawford fears a difficult end to 2019. He’s appointed a team to make sure volunteers called on in times of disasters can cope with what lies ahead.

He says Queensland Fire and Emergency Services workers are acutely aware of the dangers climate change is throwing at them.

“My people are very much on the side of the converted,” he told ABC radio on Friday amid the worst start on record to Queensland’s fire season.

“They know what they are seeing is a heightened fire danger but at the same time we’re expecting probably a heightened cyclone season as well so we’re getting it from both ends.

“But there are a lot of people in this state and in this country that don’t even believe climate change exists.”

Mr Crawford fears what might happen if the bushfire season continues in the way it began, and worries about fatigue setting in amongst volunteers and employers who release them from work during emergencies.

“Are we going to be able to sustain those numbers? What happens if we have a fire season like we had for the last week for the next three to four months?

“How do we manage that? How do we keep their employers happy, their families happy, and still be able to tap into them?”

Mr Crawford has appointed a QFES team to look at how the state can best manage volunteer fatigue and other risks including limited interstate help once fire seasons kick in elsewhere around Australia.

Hundreds of firefighters have travelled to Queensland over the past week or so to deal with the state’s ongoing bushfire emergency.

The danger is not over yet with dozens of fires still burning and a wind change expected about midday on Friday that could spark flare ups.

Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll says conditions next week shouldn’t match those of the past seven days when dozens of properties were destroyed or damaged in the south and southeast.

But she also says some fires will continue to burn for the foreseeable future.

“We will not put some of these fires out unless we get a lot of rain and there is no rain in sight,” she told reporters from a fire staging ground at Canungra, in the Gold Coast hinterland.

Qld premier defends trip amid fire crisis

Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has returned to Queensland, defending a trip to Switzerland to sell the state’s bid to host the 2032 Olympics that she later cut short.

Ms Palaszczuk met on Thursday with fire crews who for days have battled a Sunshine Coast inferno that was allegedly lit by two teenagers.

She said she couldn’t have sent anyone in her place.

“I had to do my job and as soon as I could leave I left and came straight back,” she told reporter at Peregian Beach on Thursday.

“When I left here I was thoroughly briefed, the communities were calm, I did not know that people were going to light illegal bushfires.”

She warned high winds and temperatures five to eight degrees hotter than usual will set in next week, and could cause further havoc in about half of the bone-dry state.

Ms Palaszczuk also wants parents to talk to their children about the dire consequences of setting fires after two teens were charged for allegedly starting the Peregian blaze that forced thousands to flee and gutted an elderly woman’s home.

Police Commissioner Katarina Carroll said a task force set up to determine whether any of the fires were deliberately lit is looking closely at 22 separate blazes.

“Thirteen have been obviously as a result of either a careless, deliberate, sometimes just reckless and accidental fires that have started,” she said.

“We have charged two adults, and thirteen juveniles have been dealt with.”
