WEATHER WARNING: Prepare for severe fire danger on Coast

LOCALS have been urged to stay alert and be prepared during the unprecedented State of Fire Emergency.

Fraser Coast mayor George Seymour urged residents to stay alert as weather conditions worsen, especially people who live outside of urban areas.

"A severe fire danger alert has been issued for today and tomorrow with warm and windy weather likely over the weekend," Cr Seymour said.

"While showers and thunderstorms are possible on Saturday and Sunday, they are unlikely to bring a useful amount of rain.

"Now is the time to prepare. Make sure your 'What If' plan is up to date so if you have to move you will be ready to go at a moment's notice."
