Red Cross is currently assisting vulnerable
community members as part of its cyclone recovery work.
Local Red Cross volunteers began targeted
outreach today to establish contact with residents in and around areas
hit by Cyclone Ului.
Executive director in Queensland Greg
Goebel says a particular focus for volunteers will be checking on isolated
and elderly residents.
"We have a good sense of how people
in the city centres have been affected," Mr Goebel said, "however
we are yet to determine the full impact on residents in outlying communities."
