Travel Alert: All You Need To Know About Cyclone Debbie

Posted March 27th, 2017


Cyclone Debbie is approaching the north Queensland coast and is expected to make landfall tomorrow between 7am and 9am.

Most flights in and out of the region – including Hamilton Island, Mackay, Proserpine and Townsville – have been suspended, and resorts and hotels are making arrangements for guests.

The Category 2 storm is predicted to intensify to a Category 4 cyclone when it crosses the coast, bringing winds between 160 and 200 kilometres an hour, with gusts up to 280 kilometres an hour.

The Whitsundays is already experiencing strong winds and a king tide is expected in Proserpine today, and ports in the area are closed.

People have been advised to stay away from the beaches and when the weather hits tomorrow, to stay indoors.

Travellers in areas under threat should follow the instructions of local authorities and if advised to evacuate, should do so immediately.

Local radio will also have updates and details of evacuation centres.
