Western Australia’s parts are bracing for dangerous weather because a tropical low brings dangerous winds and heavy rain to the Pilbara coast on Tuesday.
Citizens in Minilya Roadhouse, Coral Bay, and Exmouth are being notified of winds up to 85 km per hour and potential flash floods as the order moves along the coast.
The people living in warning areas are issued a Blue Alert by the state’s Department of Fire and Emergency Services (DFES), asking them to prepare for dangerous weather conditions. The warning clearly says, “people in or near communities from Minilya to Exmouth Roadhouse required to get ready for cyclonic weather and organise an emergency kit comprising torch, first aid kit, spare batteries, portable radio, water, and food.”
Similarly, troughs maintain warmth in western WA, with the heat expected to rise at 37C in Perth today.
Adelaide will be partly cloudy with a top of 25C and a minimum of 12C.
The Bureau of Meteorology has removed its severe fire weather warning today; the DFES published another emergency warning this morning for a huge number of communities, forcing them to take action immediately.
It is supposed to be a tough day for emergency services battling an out-of-control bushfire raging near the Perth Hills.
The warning is in the set-up for people in parts of the
- Upper Swan
- Walyunga National Park
- Red Hill
- Avon Valley National Park
- Herne Hill
- Brigadoon Wooroloo
- And the Shire of Chittering, Northam, Mundaring, and the city of Swan.
In nearby Australia, storms and rain are on the way for Queensland, eastern NSW, and Northern Territory, while SA continues dry and cool.
