Reports say a second cyclone has brought winds and torrential rains to coastal regions of Australia.
Cyclone Veronica (category four system) has made landfall in the western territory of Australia, 48 hours after Cyclone Trevor brought destruction in the Northern territories as a category four system.
After lingering approximately 95km off the Australia’s North-West coast, Authorities say it has made landfall in Australia causing heavy rainfall and large waves threatening to cause widespread flooding.
Australian Bureau of Meteorology says the area stretching from Karratha to Port Hedland was enduring gale-force winds of more than 125km/h, causing trees to snap and minor power outages.
The northern area faced similar conditions on Saturday when Cyclone Trevor entered the remote communities of Numbulwar and Borroloola.
Many locals had already taken precautions and reinforced their homes with sandbags and stocked up on food and water supplies.
Reports say Cyclone Veronica was a category four system but it downgraded during the weekend whilst Cyclone Trevor was ravaging the northern area of Australia.
Australian meteorologist Steph Bond says the two cyclone occurrences were unusual.
“It really is quite unusual for two cyclones to happen at the same time, particularly two very strong systems,” said Bond.
There has been no report of injuries, or destruction of infrastructure in both regions.
