SA volunteers to aid Qld storm clean-up

·1-min read

More than 20 South Australian State Emergency Service volunteers have been sent to Queensland to help with the clean-up after severe weather last weekend.

The 21 volunteers, including three incident management specialists, will spend the next four days working on damaged homes in the Ipswich and Logan areas.

"South Australia has a long history of providing assistance to other states during their times of need," SES Chief Officer Chris Beattie said.

He said the service would continue to liaise with Queensland emergency service authorities to determine if further deployments were required next week.

The hail storm that hit southeast Queensland caused damage to more than 1700 properties, with officials warning the clean-up would take some time.

Insurance losses were tipped to top $110 million.
