As North West residents nervously wait for severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica to make landfall, one larrikin has been trying to keep locals laughing while they wait out the red alert.

While everyone should be keeping an eye on official announcements — with the category 3 cyclone just hours away from hitting the Pilbara coast — many are also enjoying some light relief courtesy of a Facebook persona claiming to be Veronica herself.

Listed as a sales assistant for Coles — we assume her speciality is in water and bread supply, though she says she’s a stock clearance expert — and “in a relationship” (we assume with the ever-swirling Trevor over the border in the Northern Territory), she’s a feisty gal who’s already revealed to followers that she’s a mad Eagles fan.

She’s got a soft spot for Trevor.

Apparently, she’s “just a small-time whirly-bird wanting to make it big in the West”.

Sadly, we can’t tell you how many friends she has managed to gather because she’s a dab hand with Facebook’s privacy settings, but she has no such respect for your privacy, claiming she “can see your house from here”.

She’s a tad creepy at times.

But Veronica has offered a few glimpses into her heart, revealing that her perfect night in involves “watching Twister on Netflix with her bae”, and that she isn’t afraid to show her love for Trevor, telling her fans he “completes me”.
