normal tide between Cape Grenville and Cairns close to landfall on Friday, with
damaging waves, strong currents and flooding of low-lying areas possible.
People living in low lying areas that may be affected by this flooding should
take measures to protect their property as much as possible and be prepared to
follow instructions regarding evacuation of the area if advised to do so by the
authorities.

Very heavy rain, which may lead to flash flooding, is expected to develop about
the Peninsula and northern parts of the North Tropical Coast and Tablelands
districts on Thursday and persist into Friday.People between Cape Grenville and
Cairns should consider what action they will need to take if the cyclone threat
increases and listen to the next advice at 11pm EST.

Default Re: Severe Tropical Cyclone Ita - Far North & North Queensland

Severe Tropucal Cyclone Ita still has a very uncertain track. She may cross the coast and track south across land, or she may stay slightly offshore and move south parallel to the coast. The last scenario would bring heavy rain and cyclonic winds to coastal areas at least as far south as Mackay. If you are in the northern/far northern areas of Queensland please keep an close eye on this system.

It would be awful. I reckon though that with Mr Newman tucked up in Cooktown that the cyclone will swing south to avoid him - this coastline isn't big enough for two big wet windbags.

Even if he did, in the light of whats happening now, recognise that he had made an error, he would never admit to it and would sell the idea of having disaster planners as a radical new initiative
