Testimonial – TC Oswald

Tropical Cyclone Oswald - Bundaberg

Tropical Cyclone Oswald crossed the western coast of Cape York Peninsula as a Category 1 cyclone shortly afer midnight on 22 January 2013. Weakening to  a low pressure system, ex‐Tropical Cyclone Oswald moved inland and down the coast over the following seven days producing damaging winds, including mini‐tornadoes, extreme rainfall, and flooding across the State before extending into New South Wales.

The flood events and other effects of Tropical Cyclone Oswald had a catastrophic effect on Queensland.

Tragically, six deaths occurred that were  related to the weather event. The most severe impacts centred on the Bundaberg and North Burnett regions.

Bundaberg city passed its previous highest recorded flood level, peaking at 9.53 metres, with North Bundaberg and other low‐lying areas of the city most affected. The surrounding regions were also subjected to tornado‐like winds causing injuries and damage to homes and businesses in Burnett Heads, Bargara, Coonarr and Burrum Heads.

To the right is a testimonial from one our Customers who was affected by the damage inflicted on Bundaberg by TC Oswald.
