Two Cyclones Tracking Towards NT & QLD – Catastrophe Response Team on Standby

Severe Tropical Cyclone Lam is approaching the coast of the NT causing destructive winds and heavy rain. Currently a category 3, BoM forecast that it could reach a category 4 early Friday (20th) morning as it crosses the isolated coast between Darwin and the Gulf of Capricorn.

Tropical Cyclone Marcia in the Coral Sea is tracking towards the QLD coast generating increasingly heavy showers. It is expected to cross the coast early Friday between Bundaberg and St Lawrence, bringing with it destructive winds, flooding and flash flooding with the possibility of as much as two months’ rain in a day to the south east area of the state. Queensland is bracing for its worst weather event in two years, reminiscent of the devastation caused in the 2011 floods, and again in 2012.
