State Member for Caloundra Mark McArdle has today assured residents and business owners throughout Beerwah, Landsborough, Mooloolah and the Hinterland that they have not been forgotten after the weekend’s devastating storm that swept through the Coast.

It comes as Mr McArdle on Monday visited some of the area’s affected properties to inspect the damage and work with residents to determine the next step for recovery efforts.

“I apologise that I could not see everyone who was impacted by the weekend’s storms but from what I have seen in the areas I did visit the damage is extensive.” Mr McArdle said.

“I want to assure residents that my office is working to determine what assistance and aid is available to land owners to remove debris, to cut down and cut up damaged trees and secure their property from further loss as a consequence of the storm.”

“I have contacted The Premier Anastasia Palaszczuk’s office, the Sunshine Coast Regional Council CEO Mr Michael Whittaker, the Department of Agriculture and the QLD Reconstruction Authority to ascertain what assistance is available to help our community.” Mr McArdle said.

“It was heartening to see how our community bans together in difficult times. I have seen neighbours helping neighbours and I encourage everyone to continue to look out for one another while we pull through this.”

“I am wishing everyone the best as they begin to clean up. I will keep the community updated on my Facebook page with any information we receive from the aforementioned departments regarding aid available to them.” Mr McArdle concluded.
