All clear called for people in Telfer and Punmu as Kelvin has weakens below tropical cyclone intensity.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a report at 3pm today, indicating inland areas of the far eastern Pilbara and far northwest North Interior District were now a cancelled zone as the storm weakens below tropical cyclone intensity and moves south through the Interior of Western Australia.

“Tropical Low, sustained winds near the centre of 65 kilometres per hour with wind gusts to 95 kilometres per hour - estimated to be 95 kilometres east southeast of Telfer,” the report said.

“Ex Tropical Cyclone Kelvin will continue to track further south through the Interior during the remainder of Monday and Tuesday, eventually reaching the Eucla on Wednesday.”

Damaging winds to 100 kilometres per hour are still possible to the east of the system until Tuesday morning while heavy rainfall continues to be an issue.
