Panic buying begins on the Fraser Coast
AS PANIC buying for food continues on the Fraser Coast, some stores have been forced to restock to keep up with the demand.
Some customers have been reported to be buying aisles of bread from supermarkets in preparation for a predicted heavy downpour.
Bakery on Alice has informed the worried residents that they still have bread in-stock.
"For all those families that have missed out on bread at the super markets, we have freshly baked bread and rolls just for you," they said.
"And if you miss out today, we'll have more tomorrow and every day after that."
EARLIER: FRASER Coast residents are panic buying groceries ahead of the arrival of tropical cyclone Debbie, according to posts on social media.
People were reporting empty bread aisles at local supermarkets on Fraser Coast Brickbats and Bouquets as people look to stock up ahead of possible flooding as a result of heavy rain.
Kayla Davies said by mid morning milk and bread were low in supply at Coles, while Kirsten Krohn said Woolworths at Eli Waters was out of bread.
Up to 200mm of rain is expected across the region in the coming days as the cyclone moves south.
Panic buying was also happening in Townsville and other areas of Queensland as the cyclone hit.
