Tropical Cyclone Gabrielle : WA 2-4 March 2009
« on: 04 March 2009, 01:15:48 PM »
This cyclone does not pose any threat to WA, but it has finally formed into a cat1. cyclone called Gabrielle. It is at this stage moving South wards and is well of the coast. Just posted this for records of the 2008/09 season. It is more of a threat for shipping at this stage, unless it changes course.
