The weather bureau is predicting a category 1 cyclone will cross the Cape in the Lockhart River Region on late Wednesday or Thursday Morning. Black Star will give hourly up dates on the movement of the cyclone via the WAN service to Lockhart River.
The unique system allows up to date information to be broadcast to the community over their local radio station within minutes of receiving the information from the Cairns Hub.
