Here in the Clarence Valley, we're lucky to enjoy a subtropical climate and diverse and spectacular natural landscapes including river systems, bushland and beaches.
But like most of Australia, we are also prone to severe weather events - floods, bushfires, heatwaves and severe storms. The best way to minimise the impact of these is to be prepared.
As a council, we've invested in several projects to ensure the Clarence Valley is adequately prepared in the event of a flood or fire.
Do you know what you would do if a bushfire or flood was threatening your home? Creating a plan with your family is one of the best ways to make sure you'll be ready for natural disasters.
We regularly monitor several locations in the Clarence Valley for potential flooding, including the Bluff Bridge at Glenreagh and Prince St in Grafton. View the latest images from each monitoring station here.
