READY TO RUMBLE

STORM ARRIVES: Stormclouds gather south of Boonah (main); and a boy was hurt by a falling tree in Forest Lake (inset). Pictures: Marty Pouwelse/Channel 9

Two injured, thousands lose power as wild storm tears through southeast TOM SNOWDON QUEENSLAND’S wild weather struck again yesterday with severe thunderstorms pummelling the state, leaving thousands powerless and at least two in hospital. Over 12,000 properties were left without electricity in the state’s southeast as storms swept through bringing golf-ball size hail at Boonah, Coorparoo and Sunnybank Hills. Services responded to dozens of calls and worked throughout the night to repair downed power lines, move fallen trees and fix damaged homes. The Queensland Ambulance Service was also on high alert after a woman working at the light rail station at Helensvale was rushed to the Gold Coast University Hospital after the traffic sign she was holding was struck by lightning. A 13-year-old boy also had to be park at Kondalilla Parade, Forest Lake. The boy suffered leg and hip

Cilento Children’s Hospital. The wild weather, which the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) described as “very dangerous”, also played havoc on transport with multiple flight cancellations and delays at Brisbane Airport. In stark contrast to the heavy rains yesterday, the BOM has put alert ahead of severe heat warnings caused by dry conditions in the state’s southern interior. The conditions have led Queensland Fire Services Superintendent James Haig to warn there would be an increased fire danger for at least the next few days across the southern inland areas. “The danger extends across quite large areas of the state,” Supt Haig said. “We’ve got a lot of fuel, which means we’re very low on moisture. It’s very dry across a lot of the state. “In the past weeks we’ve had

state. There is concern about southern inland but there’s also concern about just about anywhere else in the state. We would urge people to be very aware, no matter where they are.” Supt Haig warned storms could start fires through lightning hitting an already dry fuel supply.

EDITORIAL

GOLDOC treading a fine line IN any major track and field event, the line between success and failure, between gold and bronze, can be wafer thin. So too for the organisers of major international events such as the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games. As the experience of this year’s Olympics in Rio de Janeiro demonstrated, with its substandard accommodation and green pools, years of hard work can be undone in a matter of days if every little detail is not taken care of. An event which should have encouraged ever more tourists into the Brazilian metropolis instead tarnished its image for years to come. Getting the financial balance right is equally as important. The Athens Olympics in 2004 was widely hailed a great success, but contributed billions to a debt mountain which has done enormous and lasting damage to the Mediterranean nation. With just under 500 days to go to the

opening ceremony of the Gold Coast games in April 2018, organisers GOLDOC are engaged in a difficult juggling act to ensure the smooth running of the event while staying safely within budget. Chairman Peter Beattie has told this newspaper that “adjustments” are being made as the organisers strive to negotiate this fine line. Rising costs in some areas must be balanced out by savings in others. The balancing act has been made more difficult by the decision to offer tickets to the Games at very reasonable prices. That decision is one this newspaper supports, but has attracted some criticism in state parliament from politicians concerned that the Games will raise less money than originally forecast and that taxpayers will be left to foot the bill. The fact that GOLDOC is making every effort to identify savings gives great cause for hope that this need not be the case.

Move over Rudolph, mini-me Borobis have a nose for Christmas

LEA EMERY

THE big-headed, red-nosed blue koala is set to be the star at many Gold Coast Christmas celebrations this year with GOLDOC launching the first Borobi soft toys today. A small and a large Borobi plush soft toy are among the dozens of products available as part of GOLDOC’s first official merchandise launch. The smallest Borobi is 20cm in height and will hit the wallet for $25, compared to the larger 30cm version at $40. GOLDOC chairman Peter Beattie urged parents to buy their own piece of history.

“As a grandad I have an 18-month-old grandson and he will be getting one of these gifts,” he said. “Everyone should have a little Borobi at their Christmas Day. “This is a unique souvenir which people will be able to keep for generations.” The soft koalas are just part of the merchandising

launch which includes Tshirts, Jacaru leather hats, key rings and wristbands. The launch of 60 products is the start for the merchandising which will see more than 500 different products go on sale in the next year. The store will mostly be online but from today Gold Coasters will also be able to

buy it from the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary. Official retail outlets are set to open in airports midnext year and stores at Broadbeach and Surfers Paradise will open in December next year. MERCHANDISE CAN BE PURCHASED FROM TODAY AT SHOP.GC2018.COM
