Hinchinbrook flood cameras go live

Hinchinbrook Shire Council is making flood camera images available to residents on its online disaster dashboard.

The Hinchinbrook Disaster and Emergency Dashboard flood camera feeds will allow residents and visitors to access regularly updated still images from cameras at the nominated location.

“The Disaster Dashboard is our Local Disaster Management Group’s point of truth for all disaster related updates and information, including current warnings, local road conditions, river heights and power outages,” said Hinchinbrook Mayor, Ramon Jayo.

“Residents are encouraged to familiarise themselves with our latest addition to the Hinchinbrook Disaster Dashboard before the season is upon us,” he said.

Residents are also being reminded that they have the ability to subscribe to the Opt-In Notifications service, which will provide subscribers with email notification of relevant warnings and updates as they occur.

The following locations are currently feeding regular still images to the Dashboard:

  • Abergowrie Bridge;
  • Dalrymple Creek
  • Anabranch Bridge

Council said Gairloch flood cameras will be available to the public soon, with cameras in other locations to be made available as resources allow
