The BOM currently advises: The VERY DESTRUCTIVE CORE of Severe Tropical Cyclone Marcia, with gusts to 285 km/h, has crossed the Capricorn coast near Shoalwater Bay, and is moving south towards Yeppoon and Rockhampton.
VERY DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with wind gusts above 200 km/h are expected to impact coastal and island communities between Shoalwater Bay and Rockhampton this morning and afternoon, including the Yeppoon area.
DESTRUCTIVE WINDS with wind gusts to 160 km/h are expected to extend further south and inland across the Capricornia and Wide Bay and Burnett districts later today, including Gladstone.
GALES are occurring about some coastal and island communities between Sarina and Double Island Point, and are expected to extend inland to areas including Moura, Biloela, Monto and Mundubbera during today.
Abnormally high tides will be experienced this morning with water levels expected to rise substantially above the highest tide of the year on the high tide. Note also that abnormally high tides are also likely during this evening’s high tide in parts of the warning area even though the cyclone is likely to be over land and weaker by then.
Coastal residents between St Lawrence and Double Island Point are specifically warned of the dangerous storm tide as the cyclone crosses the coast, and in the following high tide well after landfall during this evening. The sea is likely to rise steadily up to a level well above the normal tide, with damaging waves and flooding of some low-lying areas close to the shoreline. People living in areas likely to 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.
Dangerous surf is also expected.
Heavy rainfall is already occurring about coastal and island communities between St Lawrence and Double Island Point, and is expected to extend further inland across the Capricornia, Wide Bay and Burnett, and the eastern parts of the Central Highlands and Coalfields districts later today. A Flood Watch is current for the area.
