Hervey Bay's biggest fear

ELI WATERS would be swallowed by swamp, most of Craignish and Dundowran would look remarkably like Venice and the term riverfront properties would take on a whole new meaning in some parts of Maryborough.

It's the worst-case scenario but the Fraser Coast council's new Emergency Action Guide reminds residents just how devastating the impact could be on the region should a cyclone prompt a storm surge.

The Bureau of Meteorology has already issued two tsunami warnings this year and has predicted an eventful cyclone season.

While residents are being urged not to panic, the new guide does paint a grim picture of what could happen if the predictions came true.

The new guide contains information on what to do and who to call in an emergency and will be delivered to homes around the region in the coming weeks.
