DESTRUCTIVE winds, with gusts to 155 km/hr are occurring along the coast
between Port McArthur and the NT/Qld border and will extend west to Borroloola
during the late morning and then inland to Cape Crawford during the afternoon.

Coastal residents between Port Roper and the NT/Queensland Border are
specifically warned of a VERY DANGEROUS STORM TIDE as the cyclone centre
approaches the coast. Tides will rise significantly above the normal high tide,
with DAMAGING WAVES and VERY DANGEROUS FLOODING during Friday night and
Saturday.

As the cyclone approaches the coast, a STORM TIDE is also expected between the
NT/QLD border and Burketown. Large waves may produce minor flooding along the
foreshore. People living in areas likely to be affected by this flooding should
take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to
help their neighbours.

expected near the cyclone centre as it approaches the coast Saturday night.

On Sunday gales may extend to adjacent inland areas including Pannawonica and
Nullagine.

Veronica may be travelling more slowly than a typical system as it crosses the
coast during Sunday morning, and as a result communities in the path of the
cyclone should prepare to shelter from the destructive winds for an extended
period of 12 hours or more.

Widespread very heavy rainfall conducive to MAJOR FLOODING is likely over the
Pilbara coast and adjacent inland areas over the weekend. Heavy rainfall is

Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor is located in the Gulf of Carpentaria. Heavy
rain has been observed across the Cape, with up to 500 mm recorded in the past
few days.

Tropical Cyclone Trevor is expected to continue moving in a west-southwest
direction and cross the Northern Territory coast during Saturday. Heavy
rainfall is forecast over parts of the western Gulf Country during the weekend,
with potential for heavy rainfall in the Channel Country early next week.

Rainfall is expected to affect the catchments north of Cairns to Kowanyama
during Friday and into Saturday, with showers and thunderstorms persisting
during the weekend. High river levels and flooding is expected to continue in
the Cape during the weekend and into next week.
