  • Print

Communities in Austr-alia's north-west are bracing for a tropical cyclone, the second to hit the region in two weeks. Cyclone Joyce, currently a category one system, is due to make landfall near Broome in Western Austr-alia on Friday. Authorities have told local residents to secure their homes and take shelter.

The cyclone is tracking south and is predicted to bring winds of up to 100km/h (62mph), according to the Bureau of Meteorology. Higher tides, heavy rainfall and flash flooding are also expected over the coastal region, about 2,000km north of the state's capital, Perth.
