RRT provided support and meals to Kalbarri locals displaced by Tropical Cyclone Seroja. RRT volunteers served up more than 90 meals at Kalbarri Evacuation Centre and aim to continue to provide support until the situation subsides.
There are estimates more than 50 per cent of Kalbarri’s buildings have been damaged by the Cyclone and thousands are without power and other essential services in the wider region.
While the region had been given the ‘all clear’ from the Cyclone, it is now the hard work in clean up and recovery begins.
The storm damage is significant with Emergency WA estimating it to be over an area 700km long and 150km wide.
Alex Sharpe, RRT Regional Team Leader for Western Australia said that supporting people with care and compassion at their time of need is at the heart of RRT.
“There is a shortage of supplies in the area over coming days, so we only happy that we can help in a small way by providing meals to some of the hardest hit by Cyclone Seroja.”Alex said.
