DISCUSSION: As of the early afternoon hours (i.e., with respect to Australian Eastern Standard Time), the western eye wall has begun to move ashore into several cities positioned across parts of northeastern Queensland, Australia! The impacts from this large and powerful tropical cyclone will continue well-beyond the point of landfall. As this large tropical cyclone continues to move further inland and gradually weaken, there will continue to be heavy rainfall, strong-to-damaging winds, and large-scale flooding across many impacted areas. To learn about more details pertaining to the landfall and post-landfall impacts of Tropical Cyclone #Debbie, feel free to watch the Facebook live and lower video briefing (attached above).
