Disaster hub – everything at your fingertips
It’s now easier for Sunshine Coast residents and visitors to prepare for severe weather events and other disasters – and stay up-to-date with important information when events occur.
Sunshine Coast Council today launched its new Disaster Hub which has weather warnings, road closures and evacuation centres on one easy-to-use site.
It also links to airport updates, traffic cameras, flood mapping, and Council’s news updates and social media.
Sunshine Coast Local Disaster Management Chair Mayor Mark Jamieson said the new hub aimed to coordinate all local information in the one area so the public could access it quickly.
“The hub has been developed so you can view this information on your home or office computer and on mobile devices,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“This hub is also very important for the media’s use.
“We recognise the significant role the media plays in distributing credible, correct information to keep our community informed and safe.
