Severe storms cause further devastation. 

On Monday, QDO's article for the Queensland Country Life talked about the need for Industry Recovery and Resilience Projects across the state.

How fitting given what has happened in the last 24 hours in the South Burnett and some areas of the Gympie region. We know that Brian Tessman was badly hit with significant damage done to the home and dairy.

We are trying to coordinate efforts with Blaze Aid to set up a command post in the area so that they can have their team of volunteers help with the cleanup. If you or you know of anyone affected - dairy farmer or not, please let us know by phoning the office on 3236 2955. We are on the phones today trying to talk to members in the region.

If you are ever you have a severe weather event affect you, please contact the office or if on the weekend, phone any of the QDO staff members on their mobiles Eric 0459 362 955, Sarah 0424 416 317, Kerrie 0439 713 671 or Torie 0400 971 615 so we can start to assist you immediately.
