‘Mud Army’ kicks into gear in SE Qld

Plenty of Queenslanders are pitching in to help clean up what’s been left behind in the wake of ex Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

On Monday, Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk suggested the clean-up bill could run into the billions.

Three people are still missing in Queensland, including a man who went missing in Lamington National Park last Wednesday.


76 houses are unliveable in the south-east and 300 schools need to be repaired.

283 homes remain without power in Logan, where the destruction is evident.  On Tuesday, Energex put out a request to residents to get in touch if they think they’re the only one in their street without power.

You can reach Energex on 13 62 62.

A spokesperson said after natural disasters such as TC Debbie, when we restore neighbourhoods back to the grid often one single premise may have a fault such as blown primary fuse, in these cases we don’t know they’re still out.  So it might be a good idea to check with your neighbours to see if it’s just your place.

Several exits off the M1 were flooded.  Beenleigh Train Station and school and Yatala Pies all went under during the peak of the flood event.
