Unviable drought effected towns targeted for evacuation

Mayors of Emerald and Kingaroy do not anticipate Kumbia and Willows will need to be evacuated, but acknowledge the situation is serious and required continued state support.

In Kumbia, "there is no more water. All of the bores have run dry," Kingaroy Mayor Roger Nunn said.

But in Kumbia, nearly all the residents have rainwater tanks and council is hiring a driller for more bores.

"If people have to leave Kumbia, I don’t know what’s going to happen in Brisbane," he said.
