Despite Queensland’s Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk rejecting the Prime Minister’s move to include Queensland in the federal government’s state of emergency declaration for the flood disaster, Scott Morrison said he would hold a meeting with the Governor General to include Queensland along with New South Wales.

Queensland Premier rejected the move on Thursday morning, saying it was needed earlier.

The Prime Minister told reporters  “There’s been a bit of a misunderstanding  about what the state of emergency declaration entails. It does not impact on the flow of funding support of defence force assistance or any of those things, that is flowing.”

“What it does is it assists the commonwealth government in managing the regulatory issues in a more streamlined way, which particularly becomes more relevant as you move through the recovery phase.”

Nearly 6000 ADF personnel have been deployed across Queensland and New South Wales to aid in the flood disaster recovery, which is four times the number deployed after the Brisbane floods of 2011.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison revealed that Premier Palaszczuk had “every opportunity” to reach out a week ago to ask for an emergency declaration. A Premier spokesperson said that it was a decision for the commonwealth.

Queensland was ravaged with the severe weather event with some parts such as Central Qld inundated with over 200mm of rain in under two hours.

With more warnings from the Bureau of Meteorology, the state braced for another onslaught of extreme weather, with threatening storms cells dumping more rain on Thursday, with more threat of thunderstorms forecast for today. Heavy rainfall and damaging winds are possible through Northern and Central Queensland and Southern interior.
