Emergency callouts across storm hit CQ

THE State Emergency Service (SES) has received more than 120 requests for assistance around Queensland since 5am yesterday.

Of these, 97 occurred in the Central Queensland region, with most jobs flood and storm related.

Swift water rescue crews helped to rescue a man clinging to a tree in the Calliope River at Yarwun overnight and also responded to reports of a bus in floodwaters at Mount Tom this morning.

All persons were accounted for before crews arrived.

The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service (QFRS) is reminding residents if it's flooded, forget it.

Under no circumstances should people drive, walk, swim or ride through floodwaters.

By entering floodwaters, people are not only putting their lives at risk but the lives of their rescuers.

If residents require flood assistance they should contact the SES on 132 500.

In a life-threatening emergency, which includes vehicles trapped in floodwater, always dial triple zero (000).
