From: The Land Downunder
Slightly off topic, but here's a current weather report from NW Oz.
The time to send all ships to safer ports and temporarily relocate air units is now.
The time for land based units to take shelter is rapidly approaching.
Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor has already cut a path east to west from the Coral Sea (first landfall as a Category 3 near hex 91,132 Portland Roads) to the Gulf of Carpentaria on 10 March and is now looking to make landfall #2 at 10am Sat morning in the vicinity of hex 82,134 as a bigger Category 4 Cyclone.
Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is coming in simultaneously from the NW, and will cross the coast about 2am Sunday as a Category 4 Cyclone near hex 55,129 just west of Port Hedland. There are some large iron ore operations in that area represented in game by the resources at Corunna Downs.
People live in these places, granted not many, but many have been evacuated to shelters and will be facing a nervous wait followed by uncertainty as to what they will return to.
Anyone who stays will be making last minute preparations, taking shelter and crossing their fingers...
The cyclone season runs from Nov to Apr so this isn't unheard of, but two at once doesn't happen very often.
