Communities in the north west have been left unscathed by Cyclone Narelle which has weakened to a category 2.
Emergency authorities yesterday issued an all clear for towns and communities from Exmouth to Coral Bay.
At its peak, Narelle was a category 5.
The Department of Fire and Emergency Services says there was no damage to homes or other infrastructure.
Exmouth Shire President Turk Shales says residents are relieved.
"We didn't even go to yellow alert," he said.
"As far as damage, it was really limited.
"It got out a few tree branches which came down.
"We got probably up to three inches of rain which was gladly accepted."
Cyclone Narelle is about 430 kilometres west of Carnarvon.
The Weather Bureau says Narelle is expected to continue to move towards the south-south-west but is not expected to come closer to the coast before weakening.
