90.9 Sea FM’s Ben Hannant escapes as floodwater surrounds home

The Gold Coast’s 90.9 Sea Fm Breakfast with Bianca, Dan and Ben was missing Ben Hannant this morning as his family home was hit by the devastating floods.

Ben and his family left their home as floodwater covered the property and continued to rise.

Bianca Dye and Dan Anstey spoke with their missing team member on-air as he evacuated this morning.

“You poor thing, whats happening? You’ve got to leave?” said Bianca.

“Yeah, its about to go in the house. So, just lifted everything up. We’ve evacuated the kids in a little dingy and swam them up to the car, and just about to leave, so fingers crossed,” said Ben.

“Not the best day.”

The water was shown creeping up Ben’s slanted property via 90.9 Sea FM’s Facebook page yesterday as levels were increasing.

Ben posted on his Instagram today showing the water surrounding his home with no signs of slowing down.

“It’s a sad day,” says Ben.

“Gotta leave the house. Hopefully the water doesn’t come too much in.”

“Everything’s up off the ground as much as we could.”

Ben and his partner made the final touches before evacuating to safety through waist deep water which covers most of the visible landscape.
