Cyclone Preparation

Tree felled in Cyclone Carlos

With our wet weather comes the potential for cyclones. We urge those new to the region and remind those that aren't to undertake preparation on this front as sometimes on an announcement of a severe weather warning our shop shelves become depleted of food stores, batteries, torches and other essential items, so it's best to stock up on these early and be prepared.

To make sure you and your family are ready, visit the Secure NT website for tips and assistance on how to prepare for the wet season and what to include in your cyclone kit.

Manage Animals
Pet Emergency Kit

Additional information on caring for your pets is available from Council here. In the event of a cyclonic event, we will endeavor to keep you updated via our website, so please check back for building closures and post event clean-ups.

You can also find a preparation and safety checklist on the Bureau of Meterology (BOM) website to assist in your planning www.bom.gov.au. This site is a great resource for tracking weather during these events and tune into your local radio station that also provides regular updates.
