Severe Weather Alert - North Queensland

Severe Weather Alert

As Tropical Cyclone Niran is intensifying around the north Queensland coast, our thoughts are with our members in affected areas. Your safety is first priority, and we encourage you to stay in touch with local authorities and heed all safety warnings and instructions.

Tropical Cyclone Niran is expected to remain slow-moving off the north Queensland coast while intensifying over the next 24 hours.

Coastal crossing of the cyclone is not expected. However, as the cyclone strengthens, it may produce gales about exposed coastal and island communities between Cape Melville and Innisfail later today or early on Thursday.

Conditions can change quickly and we recommend you keep up to date on the latest forecast for your area on the Bureau of Meteorology’s website.
