Sun Protecting Tips
Protect yourself in five ways from skin cancer
- Apply SPF30+ broad spectrum water resistant sun-screen liberally to clean, dry skin, atleast 15 minutes before being exposed to the sun, and reapply at least every two hours when outdoors.
- Put on a broad-brimmed hat that shades your face, neck and ears.
- Wear sun protective clothing that covers as much of your body as possible.
- Seek shade
- Wear wrap-around sunglasses
Avoid going outdoors unprotected between 10am - 3pm when ultraviolet radiation is the strongest.

Some people affected by Cyclone Debbie say they are frustrated they have not been able to return to their damaged properties in north Queensland.
South-east Queensland is set for a drenching today with rainfall in excess of 200 millimetres possible in some localised areas, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has warned.
As emergency services build a picture of the destruction wrought by Cyclone Debbie, 61,000 remain without power and Mackay may have only 24 hours of clean water remaining.
