COUNTRY: Australia
PORT: Port Hedland
Ports closed as Tropical Cyclone Rusty approaches

The ports of Port Hedland, Port Walcott and Dampier have been officially closed in light of the warning in place for coastal areas from Broome to Whim Creek related to Category 2 Tropical Cyclone Rusty.

According to the Bureau of Meteorology’s Tropical Cyclone Advice No.13 issued at 8.42am today (25 February), at 8:00am WST Rusty was estimated to be 315 km north of Port Hedland and 390 km north northeast of Karratha.

Tropical Cyclone Rusty is moving slowly towards the coast. Gales are expected to develop on the coast between Wallal and Whim Creek today, later extending north towards Broome on Monday afternoon. Gales could extend as far west as Mardie and inland towards Marble Bar tomorrow.

Further intensification is likely as the cyclone approaches the coast and there is a high risk that it will cross the coast as a severe tropical
cyclone. However, the slow motion of the cyclone means that the crossing time and location is uncertain.

Rusty is a large tropical cyclone and its slow movement is likely to result in higher than usual rainfall in the Pilbara and western Kimberley. Very heavy rainfall is expected in near coastal parts of the eastern Pilbara and western Kimberley. During Tuesday and Wednesday widespread very heavy rainfall is likely to lead to major flooding in the De Grey catchment.
Significant flooding in the Fortescue catchment and in Pilbara coastal streams is also likely.
