Nation's media descends on Rocky suburb - again

RESIDENTS of Rockhampton's Depot Hill are becoming the most media savvy in the region.

The Southside suburb was descended upon by the nation's media this morning in the aftermath of the confirmed case of Zika virus.

It's not the first time local residents have found themselves at the end of TV cameras and reporter microphones.

They're old hands at it these days after the previous floods in recent years brought national attention to the area.
