Hopefully the last for this season, if you're planning going north in Western Australia soon then take into account that there is another cyclone going down the coast:
Details of SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE GLENDA at 2am WST Wednesday 29 March 2006.
Location of centre : within 30 kilometres of
Latitude 17.0 South Longitude 119.5 East.
Recent movement : West southwest at 17 kilometres per hour.
Central Pressure : 910 hPa.
Maximum wind gusts : 300 kilometres per hour.
Severity Category : 5
It's expected to cross the Pilbara coast within the next couple of days. Even after it crosses flooding could still be a problem. This is the same one that started near us but has now grown into a "big girl" (Glenda).
Happy safe travels
