Hi all

I hope everyone is well and safe after the eventful weekend we had.

Communicare have had a lot of clients query the disaster relief payment and standing for hours at the QE2 centre is very stressful, so this is an alternative for everyone to claim if it helps.

You are all entitled to claim $200 per person in your household (max $1000 per household).

Rather than line up at the QE2 centre for hours, you can lodge a claim for Disaster relief via the link on the ABC Wheatbelt Disaster relief face book page.

You need one form of ID (drivers licence, Medicare card, passport )and bank details. As easy as. You can claim $200 per person in the household. Or you can claim everyone on the same claim for the entire house and it gets deposited into your account.

https:forms.office.comPagesResponsePage.aspxid=d2MDmdTA3k2-nhusDIUEKRiArZTxeZpFkAhh3w33CVUQTRNSFVLTkJLUjVLUDRHNFJQUTJVMzRXOS4u&qrcode=true&fbclid=IwAR1Z85Ds0YpvPZNtc0VixErzSQ9UhMv1Idw-l7vWRgS36mXn4LaO4sHCxt4


Please let your family and friends know so they do not have to line up at the QE2 for hours. They sent everyone away again today and told them to come back Monday, some are elderly and disabled and cannot handle standing in line for hours at a time.

Communicate not sure how long it will take for funds to hit peoples accounts, but if their need is not urgent this is a great way to claim. You can even complete the form on behalf of other people if you have their details. (Name, DOB, Address, phone number, bank details, ID details)

-Stay away from doors and windows, and keep them closed.
-Stay indoors until the ALL CLEAR is given by authorities.

---AND---

🌀🔵 A BLUE ALERT is current for people in or near Beacon, Cunderdin, Kellerberin, Koorda, Merredin, Mt Marshall, Nungarin, Southern Cross and Trayning in the Goldfields Midlands.🌀🔵

❗️ Although there is no immediate danger you need to start preparing for dangerous weather and keep up to date.

---AND---

🌀🟢 An ALL CLEAR advice is current for people in or near Minilya Roadhouse to Carnarvon.🌀🟢

❗ The threat has passed but take care to avoid the dangers caused by damage.

🌀 CYCLONE DETAILS 🌀

Tropical cyclone Seroja continues to move inland towards Dalwallinu

The core of tropical cyclone Seroja is moving inland towards Dalwallinu. Wind gusts to 170 km/h were reported near Kalbarri during landfall, but the cyclone has now weakened to category 2.

Seroja is travelling at around 65 kilometres per hour, and significant impacts are expected to extend inland through to Wheat Belt communities overnight. The cyclone will weaken as it moves further inland on Monday but is still likely to result in damaging wind gusts, particularly to the north and east of the track, and heavy rain close to the track, as it moves through the eastern Wheat Belt, southern Goldfields and South East Coastal district.

A Severe Weather Warning is current for areas to the southeast of the Tropical Cyclone Warning area.

Hazards:
Destructive winds with gusts to 150 kilometres per hour extend 90 kilometres east of the centre of the cyclone. Destructive gusts above 125 kilometres per hour may extend inland as far as a line from Dalwallinu to Paynes Find overnight, including Morawa. Towns in this area very rarely experience wind gusts this strong.

Gales with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour extend 150 kilometres from the centre of the cyclone to the east, and extend west to the coast around Geraldton. Gales will extend further inland into the southern Gascoyne and northern Wheatbelt overnight. Seroja is moving fast, so weather conditions will deteriorate rapidly as it approaches.

Heavy to intense rainfall and flash flooding are likely close to the track of Seroja during the remainder of Sunday evening and Monday. Even though the tropical cyclone has crossed the coast, abnormally high tides could still cause minor flooding at the coast between Cape Cuvier and Jurien Bay. The threat of serious flooding has passed. Dangerous surf and beach erosion may still be occurring between Denham and Jurien Bay.

🚧 ROAD CLOSURES AND CONDITIONS 🚧

The following roads are closed:

-Great Eastern Highway from Tammin to Coolgardie
-Bindoon-Moora from Bindoon to Moora
-Shark Bay Road from North West Coastal Highway to Denham
-Monkey Mia Road from Denham to Monkey Mia
-North West Coastal Highway from Carnarvon to Geraldton
-Brand Highway from Dewar Road to Geraldton
-Midlands Road from Moora to Brand Highway
-Indian Ocean Drive from Lancelin Road to Brand Highway
-Geraldton-Mt Magnet Road from Mount Magnet to Geraldton
-Great Northern Highway from Muchea to Mount Magnet

🏠 EVACUATION CENTRES 🏠

The Department of Communities has set up three evacuation centres:
-Irwin Recreation Centre, 1 Ridley Street, Port Denison
-Carnarvon Civic Centre, Camel Place, Carnarvon
-Shark Bay Recreation Centre located on Francis Road, Denham

People who are self-isolating or quarantining due to COVID-19 should find alternative suitable premises and wear a mask. If this is not possible, proceed to the evacuation centre and identify yourself to centre staff immediately on arrival.

Please take any essential items such as medications and identification to the evacuation centre.

Pets (except recognised assistance animals) are not allowed inside evacuation centres for health and safety reasons, so you should make alternative arrangements for them in a secure and safe place within a household.
