Update from Yeppoon Yellow Cabs
The last of the evacuations from vulnerable areas in Yeppoon and surrounding suburbs is now being completed by our taxis and SES vehicles. This effort has been ongoing throughout most of the night.
Wind and rain has intensified to the point where it is now getting difficult for taxis to remain safely on the road for much longer; with our maxi taxi fleet already being ordered off the road given the driving difficulties being experienced due to very strong wind gusts.
Yeppoon Yellow Cabs advises that we will cease operations at 8.00am today and not be available for emergency evacuations after that time.
Taxi services will recommence as soon as practicable after Cyclone Marcia has passed.
The Yellow Cabs call centre will remain operating and contactable on 131924.
All emergency calls should be directed to Emergence Services on 132500.
