    Tropical Cyclone Debbie.

    The Bureau of Meteorology has warned that tropical cyclone Debbie is expected to slam into Townsville earlier than first forecast.
    Currently a Category 2 storm, Debbie is expected to become a Category 4 sometime before it makes landfall.
    Winds of up to 100km/h are expected to develop in the city as early as 4pm today based on Cyclone Debbie's current path, Queensland Police said.

    The cyclone is sitting north-east of Townsville in the Coral Sea and is expected to track west-south west and cross the coast somewhere between Townsville and Proserpine.
    An emergency alert has been issued for Cungulla and Cleveland Palms, around 40 minutes south-east of Townsville, warning residents to evacuate the area before 6am today.

    Cyclone Debbie has intensified to a Category 3 system with winds in the Townsville region now expected to be worse than those recorded when Category 5 Yasi hit north Queensland six years ago.
    Thousands of people have been evacuated to safe areas and hundreds of buildings have been lined by sandbags as the region prepares for the system to make landfall south of Ayr as a Category 4 sometime between 7am and 8am AEST on Tuesday.
    "It is possible the crossing area could be anywhere between Townsville and Proserpine. That is the uncertainty of cyclones," Bureau of Meteorology regional director Bruce Gunn said.


    The very destructive wind core of the cyclone could be about 100km wide, Mr Gunn said.

    ‘She’s going to be a monster’

    Largest evacuation in state’s history as Cyclone Debbie nears Queensland coast

    Destructive winds of up to 180 km/h are lashing Hamilton Island, as the "monster" Tropical Cyclone Debbie makes its way towards the north Queensland coast.
    Debbie was upgraded to a Category 4 storm on Monday night, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting potential winds of up to 260km/h near the centre of the system when it makes landfall around midday.

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] Police deputy commissioner, Steve Gollschewski, said emergency services were now focussing their attention on the Bowen-Whitsunday area. He said the region had been entirely locked down. Requests for help in the area could no longer be responded to, he said.
    “People have to be inside. Our officers and emergency services have withdrawn. They cannot respond any more in that area,” Gollschewski told the ABC.
    He urged residents in Mackay to stay off the roads. Emergency services still had the capacity to respond in Mackay, but that “will not last for very long”.

    Incredible video of the formidable tropical cyclone Debbie has been captured by the International Space Station (ISS) as the monster storm approaches the Queensland coast.
    The category four cyclone is the worst to hit Queensland since Yasi six years ago, and is expected to make landfall later today, just south of the coastal town of Bowen, packing gusts of up to 250km/h.

    Thousands of people in towns and cities across northern NSW and Queensland have been ordered to evacuate, as ex-Tropical Cyclone Debbie continues to dump torrential rain across the two states.
    Murwillimbah CBD and East Murwillumbah are the latest areas in NSW ordered to evacuate as the Tweed River threatens to flood early this morning.

    Record flood levels have been recorded in the southeast Queensland town of Beaudesert, and authorities fear people may have died in northern NSW as the fallout from ex-cyclone Debbie continues.
    The Logan River at Beaudesert reached 14.76m just after 5.30am, above the 13.9m record recorded in 1991, and wasn't expected to peak until after 7am.
    The Scenic Rim Council issued an emergency warning to residents in flood-prone areas overnight to move to higher ground as the Logan River continued to rise, though there is no evacuation alert in place.
