Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre

Media: Transmitters serving the area between Cape Melville and Cooktown are
requested to USE the Standard Emergency Warning Signal before broadcasting the
following warning.

TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 26
Issued at 3:56 pm EST on Friday 11 April 2014

A Cyclone WARNING is current for coastal areas from Coen to Innisfail including
Cooktown, Port Douglas and Cairns, and extending inland to areas including
Kalinga, Palmerville, Mareeba and Chillagoe.

A Cyclone WATCH is current for coastal areas from Innisfail to Cardwell,
extending to adjacent inland areas.

The Cyclone WARNING for coastal areas from Cape Sidmouth to Coen has been
CANCELLED.

At 4:00 pm EST Severe Tropical Cyclone Ita, Category 5, was estimated to be
120 kilometres north northeast of Cooktown and
280 kilometres north of Cairns, and
moving south southwest at 14 kilometres per hour.

SEVERE TROPICAL CYCLONE ITA, CATEGORY 5, poses a serious threat to communities
along the far north Queensland coast. It is expected to continue to move in a
general south-southwest direction and make landfall between Cape Melville and
Cooktown this evening or tonight as a CATEGORY 5 Tropical Cyclone with VERY
DESTRUCTIVE WINDS to 300 kilometres per hour near the core and GALES extending
out to 185 kilometres from the centre.

DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with wind gusts in excess of 125 kilometres per hour should
develop between Cape Melville and Cooktown this evening, extending south to
Cape Tribulation and possibly to Port Douglas tonight. GALES are currently
occuring between Cape Melville and Cape Flattery and should develop elsewhere
between Coen and Cape Tribulation during this evening before extending inland
to Laura and Palmerville tonight. Gales may extend south to Cairns and
Innisfail and inland to Chillagoe overnight, and possibly to Cardwell during
Saturday.
The cyclone is expected to weaken over land overnight, however, there remains
the possibility that Ita could track southwards close to the coast tonight and
maintain cyclone intensity for longer into Saturday. Should this occur
destructive winds with wind gusts to 150 kilometres per hour are possible at
Port Douglas and Cairns during Saturday.

Coastal residents between Cape Melville and Cape Tribulation, including
Cooktown are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the cyclone
crosses the coast later today. 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.
Coastal residents between Cape Tribulation and Innisfail, including Cairns
should monitor the situation in case the cyclone takes a more southerly track
than expected.

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 during
this evening and persist into the weekend. The very heavy rain should gradually
contract southwards with the system over the weekend.

People between Coen and Innisfail and adjacent inland areas including Laura,
Kalinga, Palmerville, Mareeba and Chillagoe should complete preparations
quickly and be prepared to shelter in a safe place.
- Boats and outside property should be secured using available daylight hours.
- For cyclone preparedness and safety advice, visit Queensland's Disaster
Management Services website (www.disaster.qld.gov.au)
- For emergency assistance call the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) on
132 500 (for assistance with storm damage, rising flood water, fallen trees on
buildings or roof damage).
- Follow the evacuation advice or directions of Police, Emergency Services
personnel and local authorities.

People between Innisfail and Cardwell and adjacent inland areas should consider
what action they will need to take if the cyclone threat increases.
- Information is available from your local government
- For cyclone preparedness and safety advice, visit Queensland's Disaster
Management Services website (www.disaster.qld.gov.au)
- For emergency assistance call the Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) on

It is so close to Cape Flattery, but do they still think its 6 hours away from landfall even though its going at 14kms/hour? My gut says it will slip south... missing Cape Flattery and moving in below Cooktown or following coast.

Much as I want this system to travel inland and then due south I think it will hug the coast.

I think power just cut in Cooktown. Speaking to Orebound just then and he says its starting to pick up now. Not sure if the power cut will be temporary or that will be it for a few days/weeks.
