Australian Radio Today reports that several radio stations and networks took to the streets to support local communities in the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie.
Some stations brought Easter Eggs and crossed buns, others brought volunteers to take on jobs that needed doing and others helped fill emergency supplies so residents could get food, water and other essentials.
All the while local, regional and national broadcasters provided continuous programming to keep communities updated on the latest news.
In the past DAB muxes in Australia have carried local radio stations to other regions so those with families and friends affected could follow local programming from across the vast country.
