Cyclone lam

Just got email and radio messages on cyclone lam nth of Darwin has just been up graded to cat 4. We are holed up in king George gorge and winds have been hitting 35 knots and we are some 200 miles sth west of it but it's starting to get crowded in here with two large Australian custom boats who arrived about and hour ago they have said they won't be leaving until Sunday

Re: Cyclone lam

The falls above you will be fantastic after the blow.

Should blow itself out if it goes onshore although they have been known to move over land a bit. Its in Gulf and you have the whole of NT between it and King George. Sounds as if you are in the best spot.

Are the customs vessels only using single rode ?

All the best.

Re: Cyclone lam

Predicted track has the cyclone coming ashore over Arnhem Land
Tropical Cyclone Forecast Track Map

As an aside, how do you get internet connection where you are?
