It will be too far offshore more than likely. She would have to go a fair way inland I guess.

Either way, I'm on the top floor of a beach side hotel at Trinity Beach with an ocean view, above the tree line... so I'll have a great view! If Ita did come down the coast as a cat 4 I think I'd high tail it inland - suspect there'd be a forced evacuation anyway? If it crosses just a little further south than currently forecast, say around Cooktown, Cairns should get quite a blast with the major destruction closer to the core.


Living the dream ! Hope to do this in a few years when I retire.

Hello everyone,
Been 'lurking' around the forums for a few years now & thought it was about time I got the courage to write my first post! In a nutshell, hubby & I emigrated from Uk & lived in SA for a while before making the move to this beautiful part of Australia in Nov 2010. We had already signed a contract on our new home when cyclone Yasi hit in 2011!! It didn't deter us & my obsession with the weather started with Yasi. We live in East Feluga near Tully.
I love reading your informative posts and hope in some way I can learn & contribute.
Anyway, came off night shift at 7am but stayed up to wait for 11am BOM update!!!!
Stay safe everyone x

If DM's is quite then people clearly think nothing is happening.

Well that is the lack of information causing that ! I don't understand why BOM can't explain it to the community the way it is and let people decide what they want to read from it !!

Plenty of information out there. Cairns is in the watch area and clearly in the margin of error area. If people decide to ignore that they deserve what they get.

He is taking it seriously. He has autism and shares the same interest and enthusiasm for the weather as a lot of people around here. Just a different way of expressing it.

I agree totally, Sbv72. This guy loves weather and is concerned for us living in NORTH EAST AUSTRALIA.
Good on him, just remember to laugh with him not at him.
Popeye's comment earlier had me ROFL, nearly wet myself.
It takes all types, and its the 'Normal' ones you gotta watch!

My Mum, who is up here visiting from Innisfail, just come back from Redlynch Woolworths and said the shelves are pretty bare - not a candle or slab of water to be seen. We were pretty organised here at home anyway, but obviously some are taking this serious enough.
Stay safe everyone!

TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 7
Issued at 10:53 am EST on Thursday 10 April 2014

A Cyclone WARNING is current for coastal areas from Cape Grenville to Port
Douglas.

A Cyclone WATCH is current for coastal areas from Port Douglas to Innisfail,
extending up to 300 kilometres inland to areas including Kalinga, Laura,
Palmerville, and Chillagoe.

At 10:00 am EST Severe Tropical Cyclone Ita, Category 3, was estimated to be
505 kilometres east of Lockhart River and
470 kilometres northeast of Cooktown, and
moving west southwest at 14 kilometres per hour.

SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE ITA, CATEGORY 3, is expected to move in a
west-southwest direction today and continue moving towards the far north
Queensland coast into Friday, while intensifying.

Severe Tropical Cyclone Ita poses a significant threat to communities along the
far north Queensland coast and at this stage it is expected to approach the
coast between Cape Sidmouth and Cooktown and make landfall late on Friday as a
SEVERE CATEGORY 4 TROPICAL CYCLONE with VERY DESTRUCTIVE WINDS near the core
and GALES extending some distance from the landfall location.

GALES currently extend 220 kilometres out from the centre and may develop
between Cape Grenville and Port Douglas late tonight or early on Friday.

GALES may extend southward to Innisfail and inland to areas such as Kalinga,
Palmerville, Laura, and Chillagoe late on Friday as the system moves closer to
the coast and over land.

Coastal residents between Cape Sidmouth and Cape Tribulation are specifically
warned of the dangerous storm tide as the cyclone crosses the coast. The sea is
likely to rise steadily up to a level which will be significantly above the
normal tide, with damaging waves, strong currents and flooding of low-lying
areas extending some way inland. 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 follow instructions regarding evacuation of the
area if advised to do so by the authorities.

Very heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is expected to develop about
parts of the Peninsula and North Tropical Coast and Tablelands districts late
today and persist into the weekend.

Details of Severe Tropical Cyclone Ita at 10:00 am EST:
.Centre located near...... 12.1 degrees South 147.9 degrees East
.Location accuracy........ within 20 kilometres
.Recent movement.......... towards the west southwest at 14 kilometres per hour
.Wind gusts near centre... 220 kilometres per hour
.Severity category........ 3
.Central pressure......... 958 hectoPascals

The next advice will be issued by 2:00 pm EST Thursday 10 April.

This warning is also available through TV and Radio Broadcasts; the Bureau's
website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 212. The Bureau and the State
Emergency Service would appreciate this warning being broadcast regularly.

A map showing the track of the cyclone is available at:
