Tourists encouraged to prepare and not panic this wet season
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services has launched its cyclone awareness campaign for a third year, reminding tourists of potential risks when holidaying in Western Australia’s north.
‘Be the calm before the storm’ features a collection of digital videos that prominently feature local Exmouth and Carnarvon State Emergency Service and Marine Rescue volunteers and DFES staff.
The short videos are aimed at informing those entering cyclone-prone areas of hazards such as destructive winds, heavy rainfall, widespread flooding, storm tides and dangerous swells that can occur during the wet season. Find the videos by clicking this link.
