Southern Downs town likely to run dry by Christmas

Emergency talks are underway as a Southern Downs town faces the prospect of running out of water by the end of the year.
Water is running so dangerously low in Stanthorpe that residents have been warned they'll have no drinking supply by December.
Queensland LNP spokesperson Dale Last says it's the worst drought in the region's history:
"It is serious and in the longer term we need some real planning.. real commitment from this state government going forward to deliver that critical infrastructure they need so this never happens again".
