HEAVY RAINFALL WITH SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE DEVELOPING AROUND A TROPICAL LOW

Weather Situation: At 2pm CST, a tropical low, 1004hPa, located over the northeastern Barkly District about 200km south-southeast of Borroloola and is moving slowly to the northeast.

* secure loose outside objects
* ensure pets and animals are safe
* avoid remaining in the open when storms threaten
* 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
