SOUTH Burnett Regional Council is working with community organisations to collate data on damage from the Boxing Day storms.

Burnett Inland Economic Development Organisation chief executive officer Kristy Frahm said the group was collecting a range of data relating to agriculture.

"We're assisting the council to get together

data and measurements

to see what the South Burnett has been under,” Mrs Frahm said.

"It will help with any assistance that is required.”

The group ran the survey for about a week, which looked at the financial impact of the loss of crops and stock, and damage to homes, farm infrastructure and equipment.

Mrs Frahm said the information would be presented to the council on Tuesday.

Councillor Kathy Duff was trying to arrange help from disaster support group BlazeAid.

Cr Duff said if property owners had two or three days worth of clean-up work, they could email
