Words by Jodie Powell

Moreton Bay Regional Council has issued an initial heatwave warning across the region from Tuesday, December 6 until Thursday, December 8.

The warning says maximum temperatures will rise to the mid-30s, with overnight minimum temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s.

Council says advice from the Bureau of Meteorology indicates temperatures will continue to rise later in the week, with heatwave conditions intensifying and extending in area.

Safety Advice

  • Severe heatwaves can be dangerous, especially for older people, babies, children, pregnant and breastfeeding women, people with medical conditions and people who are unwell.
  • Seek a place to keep cool, such as your home, a library, community centre or shopping centre.
  • Close windows and draw blinds, curtains or awnings early in the day to keep the heat out of your home.
  • If available, use fans or air-conditioners to keep cool.

For information on staying safe during a heatwave visit the QLD Department of Health web page.
