Cyclone Trevor to hit Australia in 24 hrs, Veronica prepares for Sunday

Cyclone Trevor and Veronica

It’s a very rare coincidence when two Cyclones are seen striking simultaneously. Australia would see Cyclone Trevor striking in 24 hours from now, i.e. on Saturday morning and Cyclone Veronica is expected to make a landfall in 48 hours from now, i.e. on Sunday morning.

Cyclone Trevor would hit the northwest coast of Gulf of Carpenteria whereas Cyclone Veronica would hit Port Headland, close to Great Sandy Desert. Trevor at present is a Category I storm and is likely to become Category II in 12 hours from now. While striking the land, it would be carrying the strength of Category II.

Presently, Cyclone Trevor is carrying the wind speed of 150 kmph gusting 180 kmph and further to 170-200 kmph at the time of landfall. Trevor is centered at 14.4°S and 139.7°E. Dangerous seas will be stirred in the Gulf of Carpentaria as Trevor strengthens, creating conditions too hazardous for swimmers and boaters to enter the water.

While, Veronica is centered at 17.6°S and 116.8°E. At present, Cyclone Veronica is of Category III with a speed of 190-204 kmph. As per the experts, it is expected that in another 12 hours, it would turn into Category IV.

Currently, Veronica is moving south/southwest and after attaining the strength of Category IV it would move south/southeast and eventually strike Port Headland. Rough surf and seas will build along the coast ahead of Veronica's arrival.

Areas near and along Veronica's track will be at risk for life-threatening flooding and damaging winds capable of damaging homes, knocking down trees and causing widespread power cuts and travel disruptions.

Both these storms would dissipate slowly and steadily. Even after making landfall, the after effects will be felt. These two storms are approximately 2000 kms apart from each other. They both are in different landmass, one in the open waters and the other one in the Gulf. Usually, when two storms are in the vicinity close to 1000 kms or less than that, then the bigger storm tends to get consumed by the smaller one and all of it happens over the sea.
