Any damage at Port Hedland?

In 1974 I was stuck inside for 3 days there, while TC Tracy was destroying Darwin

Lost a lot of money playing Poker at the Hostel


I'm amazed the place is still exists, there was an even worse one a couple of years later after I had returned to NZ
1975 - CYCLONE JOAN (Category 5)
Joan was a severe tropical cyclone with maximum measured wind gusts of 208 km/h. It damaged 85 per cent of the houses in Port Hedland, 600 km south west of Broome, WA, and other settlements along its path. Subsequent flooding damaged roads and sections of the iron ore railways, particularly that of Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd. Sheep losses were heavy but there was no loss of human life or serious injury. The estimated damage to private property and public facilities is believed to have exceeded $25 million.

Having our own little Storm here in Cook Strait right now, 130kmph winds, some heavy downpours during the early morning hours woke me up

I think Port Hedland is well prepared these days for cyclones - they seem to get quite a few.

Right now Queensland is copping another drenching. We are watching the creeks and rivers rise and the rain just keeps falling. No cyclone, but you'd think there was a low system above us by the amount of precipitation.

Keeping an eye on another low system over Western Australia. Potential cyclone development in the next few hours.

HURRICANE SANDY FINAL ADVISORY NUMBER 666
NWS TPC/NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
2210 PM SUN OCT 28 2012

A MASSIVE HURRICANE, NEY, A TITANIC BLACK MASS OF DESTRUCTION, BORN OF THE COLD, EVIL WOMB OF MOTHER NATURE, WILL RENDER MUCH OF THE EASTERN SEABOARD A BARREN WASTELAND. SANDY IS COMING.

SUCH IS THE POWER OF THIS STORM, IF INDEED, ANYTHING DISPENSING THIS AMOUNT OF HUMAN SUFFERING CAN BE CALLED A STORM.

THE STORM SURGE, ONCE PREDICTED AT 17 FEET, WILL NOW REACH UNHEARD OF HEIGHTS. IF WILL BE AS IF THE OCEAN ITSELF HAS VACATED IT'S VAST PRISON, SHAKING LOOSE HER CHAINS, AND LAYING ITSELF PRONE ATOP THE CITIES OF MAN. THE LAST VESTIGES OF IT'S BONDAGE SINKING ALL THAT LIES IN IT'S PATH.

ALL STRUCTURES WITHING A 100 MILE RADIUS WILL SUFFER DEVASTATING EFFECTS. WOOD WILL SPLINTER, CONCRETE WILL BECOME DUST. THE FOUNDATIONS WILL BE THE STARK REMNANTS OF HUMAN EXISTENCE IN THESE AREAS. TREES WILL BECOME UPROOTED AND CARRIED MILES BY WINDS THAT WILL BLAST THE VERY SKIN FROM ANYONE FOOLISH ENOUGH TO REMAIN OUTSIDE. BUT THEY WILL BE THE LUCKY ONES...THE FIRST TO DIE. FOR A MUCH GREATER MISERY AWAITS THOSE THAT SURVIVE.

AMIDST THIS MIRE OF CARNAGE, THE FEW SURVIVORS WILL WALLOW IN A SOUP OF DEATH AND DESPAIR, AS THEY FACE GRIM ODDS. FEW STRUCTURES WILL EXIST, AND FOOD AND WATER WILL BE MORE PRECIOUS THAN GOLD. AS CORPSES OF HUMANS AND ANIMALS ROT, DYSENTERY AND MALARIA WILL BEGIN THEIR MACABRE DANCE AMONG THOSE REMAINING AND MANY WILL BE FORCED TO CONSUME ONE ANOTHER TO LIVE ONE FINAL DAY.

ENTIRE GENERATIONS WILL PERISH, AND THE HURRICANE WILL CREEP INTO LEGEND. IT WILL BE A SIN TO EVEN CALL ITS NAME ALOUD, THE VERY EXISTENCE OF THIS EVENT BEING SPOKEN OF IN HUSHED TONES, AND REVERED BY THOSE WHO SEE IT AS JUDGMENT. SANDY IS HERE. SANDY IS HERE. SANDY IS HERE. SANDY IS HERE. SANDY IS H...

By the way this is ONLY a Cat 1 - hype hype hype

 

PS I know this is southern storm watch, but Sandy is south and west of me
and it seemed more suitable than Quake Watch.

Ah heres the topic, I couldn't find it before to post up about TC Evan which hammered Samoa and Fiji over the last week or so, the first big one for the 2012/2013 season.
The dregs of it are over NZ right now, we have been expecting rain for the last 4 days down here in the lower North Island but not much has happened yet.
Its been muggy, calm and hot, up to 29C on the 24th Dec, very uncomfortable, we are used to always having a steady breeze (25-100km) here in the Cook Srait area.

2011-2012 didn't seem to have as many Southern Cyclones as usual, but it may just be a misconception
It takes AusSevereWeather a while to put them all on a map
but heres a summary of the season www.australiasevereweather.com...

the season down here transcends the end of one year and the start of another, so this topic will continue on

Typhoon Bopha


(CNN) -- The grim toll from a typhoon that devastated southern Philippines earlier this month continues to climb, with 1,020 reported dead as of Sunday morning, authorities said. Officials fear the toll from the December 4 storm will rise further. Because while rescue crews continue searching, the chances of finding people alive dim with each passing day. With 844 still missing and 1.2 million families displaced, Bopha is the strongest and deadliest storm to hit the Philippines this year, according to the country's emergency management agency.
