A statement from City of Logan Mayor and Logan Local Disaster Management Group Chairperson, Councillor Pam Parker:

Sandbags will now also be available from Logan City Council's Marsden Depot from 1pm today until 5.30pm. The depot is located at 181 Chambers Flat Road, Marsden.

So far we have distributed more than 10,000 sand bags. Residents can also access bags from SES depots at 26-36 Winnetts Rd, Daisy Hill, until 5.30pm today and 1464 Waterford-Tamborine Rd, Logan Village, from noon to 5.30pm.

Please note residents will need to fill their own sandbags. If this is not possible, please contact the SES on 132 500 to make alternative arrangements.

As a result of the heavy rainfall, a number of local roads have been affected by localised flooding. The situation is changing rapidly, so please check the list for updates

Our Facebook page also has updates on the situation and stay tuned to local radio and television stations.

With heavy rain and winds impacting our city, we encourage residents to minimise non-essential travel.

If you need SES assistance for property damage call 132 500.

Stay indoors, look after your neighbours, especially the elderly in your neighbourhood.
