PIRSA to help YP storm damage victims

The Yorke Peninsula Council is working closely with PIRSA to provide support for those affected by the hail storm that whipped across the state late last month.


Yorke Peninsula farmers are among those who have reported storms impacting crops and infrastructure.


Yorke Peninsula Mayor Darren Braund said the storm produced some of the largest hailstones seen in recent memory.

"Fortunately there wasn't widespread damage reported however no doubt we've had isolated areas across the top of the Peninsula impacted," said Mayor Braund.
"We are currently working with the state government to help coordinate recovery through PIRSA".

Mayor Braund stated that primary producers can access the PIRSA Recovery Hotline by dialling 1800 931 314 and pressing #1.


All primary producers are also invited to participate in a survey to help the State Government understand the impacts of the storms, available at www.pir.sa.gov.au/storms (this closes 11.59pm Monday, 22 November). Details about storm damage will help identify the type and amount of recovery support required.


Family and Business mentors are also now available on the Yorke Peninsula to provide free, informal, confidential and independent help online at www.pir.sa.gov.au/fabs
