A Cyclone WARNING remains current for coastal areas from Ayr to St Lawrence.

At 4:00 am EST Tropical Cyclone Hadi, Category 1 was estimated to be
270 kilometres northeast of Hamilton Island and 370 kilometres east northeast
of Ayr and moving southeast at 13 kilometres per hour away from the coast.

TROPICAL CYCLONE Hadi, CATEGORY 1, has developed over the past 6 hours and is
forecast to slowly strengthen further over the next 12 to 24 hours. The cyclone
is currently moving in a southeast direction and should develop a northeasterly
track during the day today. It is likely the cyclone will remain well offshore
of the coast.

GALES are likely to continue about central coast and island communities between
Ayr and St Lawrence this morning, but are expected to ease this afternoon as
Tropical Cyclone Hadi moves further away from the Queensland coast.

Heavy rain has now eased and is no longer expected to affect the Queensland
east coast.

Large waves may produce minor flooding along the foreshore between Ayr and St
Lawrence. Tides will also be higher than normal. People living in areas likely
to be affected should take measures to protect their property as much as
possible and be prepared to help their neighbours.
