Gulf of Carpentaria prepares for cyclone Nelson

Breaking Tropical Storm News: Australia
Tuesday, 06/02/2007
A category one cyclone called Nelson is on the move in the Gulf of Carpentaria.
A cyclone warning has been issued for coastal and island communities from the Northern Territory-Queensland border east to Kowanyama.
Bureau of Meterology severe weather forecaster Geoff Callaghan says Nelson is expected to cross the coast between Kowanyama and Karumba.

*Huge areas of north Queensland remained waterlogged - and now that the category 1 cyclone formed this morning, things could get worse. The Weather Bureau issued a top priority cyclone warning for north Queensland. At 7am, Tropical Cyclone Nelson, with central pressure 992 hectopascals, was centred 95km north of Mornington Island and 270km northwest of Karumba. The cyclone was expected to cross the coast near low tide but the associated storm surge was expected to raise these tides close to the highest tide of the year.

*Innisfail was preparing for the worst yesterday with news that another cyclone could be developing off its coastline. The Bureau of Meteorology yesterday tracked two tropical low pressure systems – one off the coast of Innisfail and the other off the coast of Port McArthur in the Northern Territory. People were nervous about the prospect of having to live through another cyclone after being devastated when Cyclone Larry struck Innisfail in March last year.
