Media: The Standard Emergency Warning Signal should NOT be used with this
warning.

TOP PRIORITY FOR IMMEDIATE BROADCAST

TROPICAL CYCLONE ADVICE NUMBER 62
Issued at 5:00 am EST on Sunday 13 April 2014

A Cyclone WARNING remains current for coastal areas from Cape Tribulation to St
Lawrence.

A Cyclone WATCH remains current for coastal areas from St Lawrence to Yeppoon.

At 5:00 am EST Tropical Cyclone Ita, Category 1, was estimated to be
160 kilometres south southeast of Cairns and
10 kilometres east southeast of Cardwell, and
moving south southeast at 17 kilometres per hour.

Tropical Cyclone Ita is forecast to move to the southeast during the next 24
hours, most likely close to or just offshore of the southern tropical and
central coast, and is expected to maintain tropical cyclone intensity.

GALES with gusts to 100 kilometres per hour are likely between Port Douglas and
Townsville this morning. Gales may extend further down the coast to St Lawrence
later today, and to Yeppoon during Monday, if the system moves offshore.

As the cyclone tracks near the coast abnormally high tides are expected between
Cardwell and Mackay, but the sea level should not exceed the highest tide of
the year. Large waves are likely along the beachfront.

Heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding is currently occurring about the
east tropical coast and ranges between about Cardwell and Proserpine, and
should extend south to about Yeppoon today. Isolated 24 hour totals in excess
of 300mm are likely.

Tropical Cyclone Ita should move further southeast into the Coral Sea and away
from the Queensland coast during Monday and Tuesday, while transitioning to a
vigorous extra-tropical low. Rainfall will decrease about the North Tropical
Coast during today and Monday as the system moves away.

Townsville, should take precautions and listen to the next advice.

I reckon the usual suspects around town must be starting to flood by now, the little creek that comes through us here in mount Louisa is well up.
