Volunteers line up to assist with the Recovery

People Shine Throughout Flood Chaos

17 January, 2011

Despite huge psychological and financial impacts on the residents of Brisbane, thousands rallied to assist where possible after the devastating flood waters receded.

Council's Volunteer Coordination Centres were inundated over the week-end as the massive cleanup began.

Lord Mayor Campbell Newman called on volunteers to continue with their support this week if they are not required at work.

Services are slowly returning to normal but please check with Translink, Brisbane City Council 3403 8888 or the ward office 3403 2101 if you are unsure of what to expect. The BCC website is currently dedicated to Flood Issues and general information may not be available on this site.

My thoughts are with the many who have suffered this past week. I am grateful to the thousands who have assisted with supplies for the victims and volunteers as well as those who are providing labour and equipment. These efforts will hasten the recovery process and enable residents to begin with the rebuilding of their homes.
