Welcome to our app. In many ways it's as versatile and nimble as we are because it works on iPhone, Android, Blackberry, even on Mac and PC, and now on iPhone 5. This app is made as a courtesy to our community to inform you about "ALERTS" for road closures and Flooding, and council works by Warren Edsers apps. Where your Internet is unavailable and where your mobile is, you can follow "ALERTS" for Flooding and keep you informed if and when businesses are closed and reopen.
Long awaited rain causes road closure - 28 March 2014
Gympie Regional Council Mayor, Cr Ron Dyne advised that flooding and road closures are being experienced throughout the region.

Gympie facing a massive flood clean-up:
THE big clean up will start today in the wake of a major flood that inundated the Gympie Region yesterday.
After reaching a height of 20.3m Mary River flood waters are starting to slowly recede and attention has now turned to the major clean-up effort which will roll-out over the coming days.
Local Disaster Coordination Centre Chair and Gympie Regional Council Mayor, Cr Ron Dyne, said the flood event had caused inundation to approximately 143 businesses and 25 residences across the region.
"The Queensland Fire and Rescue Service will be assisting with clean-up efforts, which will include a high pressure wash-out of affected CBD businesses from first light tomorrow," Cr Dyne said.
"Clean-up crews will be deploying a number of vehicles so that, where ever possible, they can assist with clean-up efforts across the region.
"Affected business operators and residents can register for clean-up assistance by calling the Local Disaster Coordination Centre hotline on 5482 6399."
