Logan residents are on the front foot this storm season, with a surge in the number of people signing up to the council's Early Warning Network
The service provides official information and advice about how to prepare for and respond to severe storms.
It alerts users to potentially dangerous weather, bushfires and floods, and comes as wild weather is predicted for the region today.
More than 230 people have subscribed to the service in the past month, after news that forecasters had tipped a La Nina for Australia this summer, bringing more rain and storms.
It brings the total number to about 18,800.
Mayor Darren Power wants more people to take advantage of the free service.
"It only takes a few moments to register and it could save your life," Councillor Power said.
"All indications are that this summer will be wetter with more storms and potential flooding.
"That's why it's so important that residents have access to timely and accurate information."
