Remarks:The VERY DESTRUCTIVE inner core of Severe Tropical Cyclone Christine is now on the coast between Port Hedland and Karratha. The system is now moving further away from Port Hedland and winds there are slowly easing. In the Karratha area winds are slowly intensifying as Christine comes closer. Christine is expected to continue on a south southwest track and the centre is likely to cross the coast close to Whim Creek by about midnight.
VERY DESTRUCTIVE winds with gusts in excess of 200 kilometres per hour are likely near the centre as the cyclone crosses the coast.
DESTRUCTIVE winds with gusts in excess of 130 kilometres per hour are expected in the Karratha and Dampier region later tonight, extending well inland overnight and during Tuesday. People in Tom Price can expect destructive wind gusts to commence around 8am Tuesday morning.
GALES with gusts to 120 kilometres per hour are occurring between Wallal and Roebourne. Gales should extend west to Karratha and Dampier by this evening and then to the inland Pilbara overnight.
People on the coast between Pardoo and Wickham including Port Hedland are warned of the potential for a VERY DANGEROUS STORM TIDE tonight. Tides may rise significantly above the normal high tide mark with DAMAGING WAVES and VERY DANGEROUS COASTAL INUNDATION.
Widespread heavy rainfall is expected near the cyclone track and Flood Warnings have been issued for the Pilbara.
Gales with wind gusts to 100 kilometres per hour should extend into the eastern Gascoyne and the northern Goldfields including Wiluna later on Tuesday until the cyclone weakens overnight.
