ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES ARE NO LONGER EXPECTED FOR GROOTE EYLANDT

Weather Situation: The monsoonal flow associated with a monsoon low located near the base of the Cape York Peninsula. The storm surge is weakening across the Gulf of Carpentaria as the low moves east, so abnormally high tides are no longer expected.

* pull over if it is raining heavily and you cannot see, park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears
* avoid driving into water of unknown depth and current
* stay away from flooded drains, rivers, streams and waterways
