Storm tide surge evacuation maps

These storm tide surge evacuation maps show areas that may be at risk of storm tide flooding associated with a cyclone.

To find out if you are in one of the three risk zones:

  • Look in your meter box for a red, orange or yellow sticker;
  • Check the maps below; or
  • Search your address.

If you ARE in a coloured zone:

  • Your property may be at risk of storm surge flooding during a cyclone.
  • Prepare to evacuate if emergency services issue an evacuation order for your zone.
  • Take the most direct route as shown in the storm tide surge evacuation maps below.

If your property is NOT in a coloured zone, you are outside the predicted storm tide risk zone and do NOT need to evacuate.  Stay home, follow your emergency plan and make your cyclone preparations.
