cyclone oma

Updated 22 Feb 2019.

Cyclone Oma has been forecast to throw a U-Turn and loiter in the Coral Sea where its continuing commotion will light up every north-coast point that likes swell from the east and wind from the south. There are millions of surfers in the water, everywhere.

Oma, originally a low pressure system, dropped out of the monsoonal belt earlier in the month and flooded north Queensland. It has since moved offshore the Qld coast and continues to confound everybody with its changes of direction

Oma remains a Category 1 cyclone.

A Category 1 cyclone’s strongest winds are GALES with typical gusts over open flat land of 90 – 125 km/h. … These winds correspond to Beaufort 10 and 11 (Storm and violent storm). BOM.
