Hilda seems to have an interesting environment. Strength from the tropics and mix of positive and negative dynamics in mid latitudes

Crossing peninsular about 5pm to recharge ...
Nice tail showing on sat pic and outflow .
Certainly gathered its fair share of convection from around the area.

Wind in the last 4 hours has almost gone around the clock...

Going from SE to ESE to E to ENE to NE to NNE to N to NNW .

Still definitely gale force winds .

TC Hilda got very close to Broome and even closer to my place as I live further down in south Cable beach I'd say 15-20kms away from the eye.
Bloke next door had a tree branch land on his car out the front of his house.

Huge gusts of wind around with some strange noises during the height of it think there was a few things flying around up there.

Lots of beach sand plastered all over my car...

Besides a few broken branches and 9 million leaves in the carport and verandah not much damage here luckily..

Last night lost internet for an hour then power for about an hour then internet again ...

Luckily the one device that we have that you can almost always rely on was the mobile and after last night I realized the importance of my back up phone battery.

We are in Cable Beach also. We lost 5 trees to the storm, one on top of our car, but thankfully it was a very bushy tree without too much weight. Our gates broke. and our neighbours side fence flew off in to a storm drain. All in all was a good storm. Made me miss Hedland.

Still Cat 1



Details of Tropical Cyclone Hilda at 11:00 am AWST:

Intensity: category 1, sustained winds near the centre of 75 kilometres per hour with wind gusts to 100 kilometres per hour.
Location: within 20 kilometres of 19.5 degrees South, 121.5 degrees East , 95 kilometres south southwest of Bidyadanga and 185 kilometres south southwest of Broome .
Movement: south southwest at 8 kilometres per hour .

The cyclone should gradually weaken over land as it moves on a general southerly track.


Hazards:

GALES with wind gusts to 100 kilometres per hour are possible between Bidyadanga and Wallal and the adjacent inland areas until early to mid Thursday afternoon. Squally thunderstorms with gusts to 90 kilometres per hour are expected to persist over inland eastern Pilbara areas today and overnight as the system tracks to the south.

Heavy rain is occurring over the west Kimberley and adjacent east Pilbara, and should extend further south into the east Pilbara today.

Personally though Hilda was the strongest Cat 1 TC I've ever experienced ..
Probably really more like a Cat2 with 139km/hr winds when close to Broome about 6.30pm.

Agee with you there Des. Just the structure and tight rain bands around the centre, apart from the fair bit of damage around town, must push it to about the limit of cat 1. Maybe BOM will do their end of season analysis and ramp it up. That has happened before...

Yer Ive seen Cat 1s that could hardly blow a leaf off a tree leave alone blow a tree over .Think theres probably room for improvement in classification between a Cat 1 weak and a strong Cat1 .Even though it says under 125km/hr winds anything over is supposed to be Cat 2 .

Yes very tight around eye when close to here.

But glad we didn't have too much more rain when the system was around otherwise the ground may of been so satuated lot more trees would be down now.

Bom Definition :Tropical Cyclones are low pressure systems that form over warm tropical waters and have gale force winds (sustained winds of 63 km/h or greater and gusts in excess of 90 km/h) near the centre.

We didn't sustain winds over 63km/hr much more than an hour but the gust we sustained for four and a half hours between 80 to 100km/hr . Figure that out...

At my place 115km/hr strongest gust.

Any damage at yours Sepo?

I was in a Cat 1 in Townsville in March 2000. TC Tessie.
Had a big tree come down on my day car while my precious older cars were under house. Flood then came thru. Some of Townsville without power up to 3 days. I was lucky being on elec feed to the hospital and only lost power for less than day
