06 Mar UPDATE – TROPICAL CYCLONE IRIS – CAT 2
Cyclone IRIS is a CAT 2; “…intensifying as it continues moving southeast parallel to the Queensland Coast”.
WARNING ZONE – HAS MOVED SOUTH – Now BOWEN TO ST LAWERENCE, incl. MACKAY and the WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS
WATCH ZONE – ST LAWRENCE TO YEPPOON
“…the cyclone is not expected to cross the Queensland Coast in the short to medium term, but may approach the coast close enough to produce significant impacts.”
Whitsunday Pet Resort preparations are largely complete. All of the pets are getting plenty of attention, enjoying it in fact; and are comfortable and secure with cosy bedding.
We are currently trading as normal with Wednesdays the same as usual; by prior appointment during our normal weekday trading hours. As this Cyclone is a little
unpredictable, slow moving etc; please keep checking back for further blog updates which will be provided at least once daily. Once again, take care, stay safe. A genuine thank you for your patience.
