The violent cyclone Damien hits Western Australia at the Pilbara. Damien has reached the tropical cyclone stage. The system should continue on this intensification trend before hitting the Pilbara coast Saturday.

Impact is likely to be severe because Damien could become a violent category 4. The other uncertainty concerns the intensity of Damien at the time of impact. The global forecast models present some disparities on the intensification at the time of the south descent. The euro IFS model is the most aggressive and suggests the possibility of rapid intensification before impact.

For now, the BOM is considering category 4, which corresponds to a major category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale, and intense cyclone on the intensity scale of the southwest Indian Ocean.

BLUE ALERT for people in or near Wallal Downs to Port Hedland and Mardie to Onslow but not including Onslow, (including the towns of Pannawonica, Tom Price, Paraburdoo, Nullagine and Marble Bar) need to prepare for cyclonic weather and organise an emergency kit including first aid kit, torch, portable radio, spare batteries, food and water.

Happens pretty much every year in this area, sometimes more than once.
