2019 Monsoon Through Rainfall and Flood Review

In late January 2019, tropical Queensland received an extended period of heavy rainfall as a result of an intense slow-moving monsoon and tropical lows. This event continued to affect Queensland until 9 February 2019. In response to the event, the Minister for Fire and Emergency Services, the Honourable Craig Crawford, tasked the Inspector-General Emergency Management on 7 February 2019 to assess disaster management elements of the Monsoon Trough event including: • the preparation and planning by state and local governments and the community • the response to the weather event, including measures taken to inform the community, protect life and private and public property, and manage the supply of essential services • dam operations, in particular for the Ross River Dam, and associated emergency procedures • resourcing, overall coordination and deployment of personnel and equipment, and • other related matters the Inspector-General Emergency Management considers relevant, including land use planning and building codes.
