Cyclones Veronica and Trevor bring damaging winds and severe coastal tides to Australia.
Cyclone Veronica remains a category 4 system and it is tracking towards the Western Australian coast. Warnings have been issued for the communities in Port Hedland, Karratha and surrounding towns in the Pilbara region, a region rich in industries such as mining, shipping, transportation, oil and gas.
Cyclone Trevor, currently a category 3 system, will intensify further and should continue its southwest movement across the Gulf of Carpentaria today. It is likely to cross the Northern Territory coast during Saturday as a category 4 severe tropical cyclone.
Damaging winds, severe coastal tides, and heavy rain are expected to affect both of these regions over the weekend.
Our teams in Western Australia, the Northern Territory, and Queensland are planning for deployment of resources to assist clients to restore and enhance lives, businesses and communities in the affected towns. Overseas resources are mobilised already and will assist local teams to manage an influx of claims from the event. Account managers are reaching out to clients to advise of our plans and to understand the extent to which clients are exposed.
Our thoughts are centred around the safety of those people who live and operate businesses in these towns.
