A 20-year-old college student from Long Island, New York is counting her blessings after a 5,000-pound tree crashed through her ceiling and landed on her bed while she was sleeping in it. Authorities say Stephanie Epstein wasn't crushed to death because she was lying on her side at the time of impact.
UV Index Sun Protection
Environment Canada developed the UV Index to inform Canadians about the strength of the sun's UV (ultraviolet) rays. UV rays can cause sunburns, eye cataracts, skin aging and skin cancer. The higher the UV Index number, the stronger the sun's rays, and the greater the need to take precautions. The table below outlines the sun protection actions recommended at different levels of the UV Index.
