So far this season, there has only been one Cyclone, "Clare". This was a catergory 3/4 in the north west of Western Australia. Although strong, as
it crossed the coast it lost power quickly. The region is very sparsely populated, virtually desserted except for a few coastal service towns. There
are a selection of mines though that had to be shutdown and also oil rigs. The eastern seaboard, where the major population is located has had nothing
as of yet but the cyclone high season is usually from about now till april.
