Bureau of Meteorology Tropical cyclone Oma is expected to move slowly southwest during the next couple of days, bringing it closer to the southeast Queensland coast on Friday. Oma's motion becomes slow moving and more uncertain over the weekend, possibly taking a more northwest track off the Queensland coast.
Even if it does not make landfall, dangerous surf, abnormally high tides, beach erosion, gales, and heavy rainfall still pose a risk from Queensland's Capricornia Coast down to Ballina in NSW.

Further to my post last weekend on the Pratt Cattle Transport cap, and the sledging from some journalists for wearing it at Julia Creek, Pratt Cattle Transport has now decided to get more caps made and sell them with 100% of the profits going to the Sisters of the North charity to support flood-affected families in North-West Queensland. So our Liberal Nationals team of MPs decided to chip in and support what is a worthy cause.
Our Government stands united in backing all Australians affected by natural disasters, whether it’s floods, droughts or fires. It’s part of our plan to keep Australia strong. We’ll do everything we can to help them rebuild and regroup.
One of the things I love most about this great country is how Australians will come together to support others doing it tough.
So thank you Tim, for giving me the cap, I was proud to wear it last week and we’re just as proud to wear it today.
On Friday night in Emerald, I had the pleasure of presenting a ‘certificate of service’ to Mary and Steve Brimblecombe for their 50 Years Membership and long contribution to the LNP. Thanks again for your long term support and friendship. ... See MoreSee Less
