Bligh visits flooded regions

PREMIER Anna Bligh will visit flood ravaged regions today as communities begin to take stock of the damage caused by the state's worst floods in 50 years.

Returning from leave with her family, the Premier will receive a comprehensive briefing before inspecting areas affected by the unprecedented flooding.

And while water levels are receding in some communities and the focus is now on the clean-up, there remain a number of areas under serious threat of flooding.

"The way in which our emergency services, local councils and communities have responded to these unprecedented weather events is nothing short of remarkable.

"While the weather conditions have thankfully eased in parts of Queensland, many communities remain at risk of flooding.

"Our priority is ensuring communities are prepared and that they are getting the support they need."

"We will now also turn our efforts to the recovery in communities where the water levels are subsiding and the damage can be assessed."

"I have been in constant contact with the Acting Premier and received regular briefings on weather, flooding and the evacuation of Theodore."

The Premier will visit Bundaberg and Rockhampton, while the Deputy Premier will visit Dalby and Warwick.
