Tropical Cyclone 10S (Dominic) Hits Western Australia – UPDATE
Tropical Cyclone 10S (Dominic) made landfall just after 7am (AWDT) near Onslow in Western Australia.
Heavy rain is falling over the north-western part of Western Australia, reports ABC News Australia, as Dominic moves further inland.
The cyclone, which was at Category 2 strength when it hit the coast, has caused flash flooding. As conditions for motorists are dangerous, residents have been asked to stay at home and to avoid using the roads.
Damage in Onslow was minor, including downed power lines and structural damage to roofs.
Dominic has since weakened to a Category 1 cyclone and then to a tropical low.
