Rebel FM helps out flood affected evacuees

Saturday 01 April, 2017

Ash Palmero and Jake Chapman from the Rebel 99.4 FM Breakfast show hit the road after their show yesterday morning and paid a visit to the Ormeau Community Centre.

Residents in parts of Ormeau, Jacobs Well and Norwell, on the main corridor between Logan and the Gold Coast were evacuated this morning due to rising water levels on the Logan and Albert Rivers.

It was just one of four evacuation centres opened by the Gold Coast City Council in the past 24 hours to help residents wait out rising floodwaters caused by Cyclone Debbie.

With supplies in the local area running out fast, Norco came to the party and supplied Ash and Jake with Milk for evacuee families and chocolate milk for kids waiting it out at the
centre.

Flooded roads have made it difficult to get fresh food supplies to many people in the Scenic Rim and Gold Coast region since rain started on Wednesday. In Beaudesert and surrounding
areas there’s been reports of over 500 millimetres of rain in the past 24 hours.

It’s expected that flood waters will start receding overnight.

All of the Gold Coast City Council area is within the ACMA's Gold Coast radio licence area. Rebel FM is not a licensee within the Gold Coast licence area and Ormeau is well within the Gold Coast licence area.

With a significant ridge of mountains between Ormeau and the nearest Rebel FM transmitter, it is quite strange that they would broadcast from such a community centre.
