Storm tide property search

Due to de-amalgamation and effective 1 January 2014, properties located within the new Douglas Shire Council area will no longer display in this search. Contact DSC for more information from 1 January.

Residents in the DSC area can refer to Cairns Regional Council's printable PDF storm tide evacuation maps for general information on storm tide zones in their area.

Search your suburb and street to find out if your property is in one of the three evacuation zones (Red, Orange or Yellow).  These zones may be at risk of storm tide surge flooding associated with a cyclone.

If you ARE in a Red, Yellow or Orange coloured zone:

  • Your property may be at risk of storm tide flooding during a cyclone.
  • Prepare to evacuate if emergency services issue an evacuation order for your zone.
  • Take the most direct route as shown in the Storm Tide Evacuation maps.

If your property is NOT in a Red, Orange or Yellow coloured zone, you are outside the predicted storm tide risk zone and do NOT need to evacuate.  Stay home, follow your emergency plan and make your cyclone preparations.
