The remnants of Ex-Tropical Cyclone Nathan are expected to approach the Pilbara
coast Sunday evening. This activity will extend into western parts of the
Pilbara district during Monday.

Rainfall associated with this event is likely to result in significant river
rises in catchments within western parts of the Pilbara district, with minor
flooding possible.

Catchments likely to be affected include the Lyndon-Minilya Rivers, Onslow
Coast and lower areas of the Ashburton River.

DFES advises people and communities to be aware that flooding is possible and
be prepared to relocate equipment and livestock. Watch water levels. Travellers
need to be aware that road conditions may be adversely affected and travel
plans may need to be reconsidered. Do not drive into water of unknown depth and
velocity.
