Tropical Cyclone Damien Impacts Pilbara

Western Australia’s Pilbara ports have resumed normal activities following closures over the weekend as Tropical Cyclone Damien hit the coast.

Ports of Port Hedland, Dampier and Ashburton were cleared and closed on Friday, February 7 before the cyclone had reached the land and brought in strong winds, heavy rain and dangerous storm tides.

Tropical Cyclone Damien came to a category 3 level when it made land contact, but was reduced to a category 1 by Sunday afternoon.
