MEDIA OUTLETS PLEASE NOTE: 

QFES REQUESTS MEDIA BROADCASTING IN THE WARNING AREA TO USE THE STANDARD EMERGENCY WARNING SIGNAL (SEWS) WITH THIS MESSAGE.

Bushfire warning level: EMERGENCY WARNING

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) advises there is a bushfire approaching Peregian Beach, Peregian Breeze Estate and south of Lake Weyba. Leaving immediately is the safest option, as it will soon be too dangerous to drive.

Follow your bushfire survival plan now. If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave immediately if it is clear to do so. If you cannot leave, identify where you will seek shelter from the bushfire. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.

Currently as at 4.25pm Tuesday 10 September, a large and unpredictable fire continues to travel in a north, north westerly direction from Peregian Beach towards the southern end of Lake Weyba. 

The fire is expected to have a significant impact on the community. 

Crews have been working in the area throughout the day with the support of firefighting aircraft.

Residents living to the south of Lake Weyba, along Clarendon Road and Win Road, are advised to evacuate in a westerly direction along Murdering Creek Road and Emu Mountain Road, towards Cooroy.

Peregian Beach residents should evacuate in a northerly direction towards Noosa. 

Residents of Peregian Breeze Estate should evacuate in a southerly direction along Sunshine Motorway towards the Nambour Showgrounds on Coronation Avenue, Nambour, or Fishermans Road Multi Sports Centre at 108 Fishermans Road, Maroochydore.

Evacuation centres remain open for people travelling north at the Cooroy Library, 9 Maple Street, Cooroy, Noosa Leisure Centre, Wallace Drive, Noosaville and The J Noosa, 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction.

Conditions are now very dangerous and firefighters may soon be unable to prevent the fire advancing. The fire may pose a threat to all lives directly in its path. Fire crews may not be able to protect your property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door: act now.

Power, water, and mobile phone service may be lost and road conditions may become very dangerous over the next several hours.

People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
•           Listen to your local radio station or visit the Rural Fire Service (RFS) website for regular updates.
•           Put on protective clothing (e.g., a long-sleeved cotton shirt, boots with thick soles).
•           Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
•           If you suffer from a respiratory condition, keep your medication close by.

If you are leaving:
•           Secure your pets for safe transport.
•           Check for road closures and then advise family and friends of your intended travel route.
•           Take your important documents and essential items (e.g., passports, birth certificates, prescription medication, food and water, and protective clothing) when you leave.
•           Drive with caution in low visibility conditions.

If you are unable to leave:
•           Bring pets inside; restrain them with a leash, a cage, or inside a secure room; and provide them with plenty of water.
•           Fill containers such as your bath, sinks, and buckets with water so you have access to drinking water and firefighting water.
•           Close windows and doors, sealing the gaps under doors and screens with wet towels to keep smoke out of the house.
•           Identify a safe spot to shelter in, which would be a place with more than one exit, preferably inside a brick building, away from windows and doors. The safest spot is the place that will keep you furthest away from the intense heat from the fire. As the fire approaches and passes, the safest spot will change, so be ready to move.

Follow your bushfire survival plan now. If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave immediately if it is clear to do so. If you cannot leave, identify where you will seek shelter from the bushfire. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.

Currently as at 12pm Tuesday 10 September, a fast-moving fire is travelling in a north, north westerly direction from Peregian Beach and Peregian Breeze Estate.  It is heading towards Marcus Beach and Weyba. 

The fire is expected to have a significant impact on the community. 

Peregian Beach and Marcus Beach residents should evacuate in a northerly direction towards Noosa. 

Residents of Peregian Breeze Estate should evacuate in a southerly direction along Sunshine Motorway towards the Nambour Showgrounds on Coronation Avenue, Nambour, or Fishermans Road Multi Sports Centre at 108 Fishermans Road, Maroochydore.

Residents of Weyba should evacuate in a north west direction to Emu Mountain Road and Walter Hay Drive towards Cooroy.

Evacuation centres are open for people travelling north at the Cooroy Library, 9 Maple Street, Cooroy, Noosa Leisure Centre, Wallace Drive, Noosaville and The J Noosa, 60 Noosa Drive, Noosa Junction.

Conditions are now very dangerous and firefighters may soon be unable to prevent the fire advancing. The fire may pose a threat to all lives directly in its path. Fire crews may not be able to protect your property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door: act now.

Power, water, and mobile phone service may be lost and road conditions may become very dangerous over the next several hours.

People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
•           Listen to your local radio station or visit the Rural Fire Service (RFS) website for regular updates.
•           Put on protective clothing (e.g., a long-sleeved cotton shirt, boots with thick soles).
•           Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
•           If you suffer from a respiratory condition, keep your medication close by.

If you are leaving:
•           Secure your pets for safe transport.
•           Check for road closures and then advise family and friends of your intended travel route.
•           Take your important documents and essential items (e.g., passports, birth certificates, prescription medication, food and water, and protective clothing) when you leave.
•           Drive with caution in low visibility conditions.

If you are unable to leave:
•           Bring pets inside; restrain them with a leash, a cage, or inside a secure room; and provide them with plenty of water.
•           Fill containers such as your bath, sinks, and buckets with water so you have access to drinking water and firefighting water.
•           Close windows and doors, sealing the gaps under doors and screens with wet towels to keep smoke out of the house.
•           Identify a safe spot to shelter in, which would be a place with more than one exit, preferably inside a brick building, away from windows and doors. The safest spot is the place that will keep you furthest away from the intense heat from the fire. As the fire approaches and passes, the safest spot will change, so be ready to move.

Follow your bushfire survival plan now. If you do not have a plan, your safest option is to leave now if it is clear to do so. If you are not in the area, do not return, as conditions are too dangerous.

Currently as at 7.15pm Monday 9 September, a fast-moving fire is travelling in an east, north-east direction from Emu Mountain Road towards Peregian Beach and Marcus Beach. 

It is expected to impact Peregian Beach and Marcus Beach. 

Peregian Beach and Marcus Beach residents should evacuate in a northerly direction towards Noosa. 

Residents of Peregian Breeze Estate should evacuate in a north-west direction along Old Emu Mountain Road and travel toward Noosa. 

An evacuation centre is open for people travelling north at The J Theatre Noosa, 60 Noosa Dr, Noosa Heads.

Evacuation centres for people travelling south are open at the Coolum Beach Surf Club, 779 David Low Way, Coolum Beach and Multi Sport Centre, Fishermans Road Maroochydore.

Fire crews are working to contain the fire but firefighters may not be able to protect every property. You should not expect a firefighter at your door. Power, water, and mobile phone service may be lost.

People in the area will be affected by smoke, which will reduce visibility and air quality.

Call Triple Zero (000) immediately if you believe you are under threat.

WHAT YOU SHOULD DO:
Listen to your local radio station or visit the Rural Fire Service (RFS) website for regular updates.
Put on protective clothing (e.g., a long-sleeved cotton shirt, boots with thick soles).

Secure your pets for safe transport.
Check for road closures and then advise family and friends of your intended travel route.
Take your important documents and essential items (e.g., passports, birth certificates, prescription medication, food and water, and protective clothing) when you leave.
Drive with caution in low visibility conditions.

If you are unable to leave:
Bring pets inside; restrain them with a leash, a cage, or inside a secure room; and provide them with plenty of water.
Move flammable materials such as doormats, wheelie bins, and outdoor furniture away from your house.
Fill containers such as your bath, sinks, and buckets with water so you have access to drinking water and firefighting water.
Close windows and doors, sealing the gaps under doors and screens with wet towels to keep smoke out of the house.
If you suffer from a respiratory condition, keep your medication close by.
