Remnants of Tropical Cyclone Ellie - February 3rd, 2009

Remnants of Tropical Cyclone Ellie - February 3rd, 2009

After crossing the Australian coast at Mission Beach yesterday, Tropical Cyclone Ellie weakened into a rain depression. Here, the remnants of the system are visible above Queensland.

Yesterday, the Australian Bureau of Meteorology’s Tropical Cyclone Warning Centre in Brisbane reported that the storm was fairly weak, although it was causing heavy rains and wind gusts of up to 100 kilometres could still be expected.

Those heavy rains could continue to cause flooding and other problems in the areas between Innisfail and Mackay for the next few days.

The bureau has forecast that the storm will move back out to sea within 24 to 36 hours and reform, thus bringing moreĀ  heavy rain and strong winds to Queensland’s central coast later in the week.
