Severe Cyclone Trevor makes its second landfall, Veronica next

Cyclone Trevor and Veronica

While gaining strength and shifting to Category IV, Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor made its second landfall this Saturday morning, as per their local time. With Veronica targeting the Pilbara Coast, this would be the only second time in Australia’s history that two Category IV cyclones make landfall within 24 hours of each other.

It is expected that as Trevor would continue to move inland, its powerful gusty winds would weaken quickly. However, the damaging potential of the storm cannot be ignored. Trevor’s downpour would eventually affect South Wales and South Queensland, including Brisbane and Sydney in the coming days.

As per the experts, Veronica is expected to make a landfall as Category IV on the Pilbara coast by early Sunday. Areas near and along Veronica’s track would be at risk for major flooding due to excessive rains and damaging winds.

Sustained wind speed of 110-160 kmph gusting to 195 kmph would cause immense damage to well-built homes. Also, there is a possibility that communities near the coast might be left without electricity or water for several days or weeks post the cyclone. The experts have to say that there stands a chance of Veronica stopping its forward motion just before making the landfall. However, this would not reduce the risk for a flood disaster.
