Pilbara Ports being Evacuated
Pilbara Ports Authority has commenced evacuating the inner and outer anchorages at the Port of Port Hedland, as a tropical low, 315km from Port Hedland, continues to track toward the Pilbara coast in a southerly direction at six knots.
The evacuation of vessels at both anchorages is expected to be complete by midday (AWST).
The Port of Dampier is expected to begin evacuating vessels from the outer anchorage from 6pm tonight (AWST).
The Port of Ashburton remains open, however PPA will continue to monitor weather conditions.
