You bring up a good point. I think it might be a bit excessive to make it completely public (nor would I know a good way to go about that), but I think if you've been communicating with someone who was then banned, you should be able to approach a senior staff member and ask if you have any reason to be concerned. We could discuss it privately from there. On our end, I can't think of a good way to reach any and all impacted people in cases where there may be reason for concern.
But this heatwave is different; it’s covering a larger area — hitting five capitals — and it’s sticking around for longer. Maximums well into the 40s in the major cities, and as high as 46C in regional centres, will stick around like a hot sticky broken record.
Canberra is forecast to have its most intense heatwave in five years, with four consecutive days above 39C. Adelaide and suburban Sydney will also suffer with several days above the 40C mark, possibly touching 45C in parts.
“A severe-to-extreme heatwave has been occurring over the southeast interior for a few days already, but today it is spreading to Adelaide, inland Victoria and parts of Tasmania. From Tuesday it will include Sydney and pretty much all of New South Wales as it intensifies in the ACT,” said Sky News Weather channel meteorologist Rob Sharpe.
“This is getting into very hot territory and that heat just lingers.”
Expect humid days and uncomfortable nights.
“This heat is already record breaking, with Borrona Downs, in far north west NSW, recording the state’s hottest minimum temperature for any month. The mercury only dropped as low as 34.6C, beating the previous record of White Cliffs set in 2017 of 34.2C.”
