    The right equipment to deal with weather woes

    Published on 13 February 2019, Wednesday, 3:12 AM

    This January has been one of extreme weather for parts of Australia, with bushfires affecting Tasmania, Victoria and WA, and floods devastating Queensland and NSW.

    According to Weatherzone (January 29) an intense low is going south, taking "flooding rain and damaging winds from northern NSW to the state's south coast".

    Australian Associated Press reported that around 180,000 homes in southeast Queensland are without power this morning, with broken tree branches and debris littering some streets.

    If your home has been affected by the storm, then you might need some equipment to help you clear any debris.

    Kennards offers a range of scissor lifts and cherry pickers to help you cut off dangerous broken branches, with chainsaws also available for hire.

    If you have been affected by power outages, Kennards has a selection of generators to choose from to get your home or business going until power is restored.

    Residents in NSW can retrieve flood information - including weather warnings, traffic alerts, evacuations and disaster recovery - from the NSW government website.

    Queensland residents can head to The Courier Mail, Bureau of Meteorology and Brisbane City Council websites for information.
