Bring On The Wild Weather, Major says!


Bring On The Wild Weather, Major says!

admin March 12, 2018



A FAR Northern mayor says he is ready for whatever else the wet season throws at the region, with more wild weather predicted this week.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has warned Cape York residents to brace for more extreme weather, as a monsoon trough is expected to become more active in the region during the next couple of days.

It comes as heavy rain in the Cassowary Coast and Hinchinbrook regions that caused widespread flooding, eased up yesterday allowing access to the Bruce Highway south of Cardwell.

The national highway, however, was still expected to be cut off today.

Corsis, southwest of Innisfail, received the heaviest rainfall of 191mm from the 48-hour period to 2.30pm yesterday.
