Cyclone Joyce approaches northern WA

A vehicle passes through a flooded Chinatown in Broome

A yellow alert has been issued between Cape Leveque and the Aboriginal Community of Bidyadanga in the Kimberley region, including Broome, with a possible threat to lives and homes.

Department of Fire and Emergency Services regional head Glenn Hall on Thursday ordered the closure of the Great Northern Highway between Port Hedland and Broome for 36 to 48 hours.

Parts of the Pilbara remain on yellow alert but Joyce has not been the monster originally feared.

In Broome, police are warning residents not to drink too much or hold "cyclone parties", The Australian reports.

The storm is the second to menace Australia's northwest in as many weeks, since Cyclone Hilda blew down trees and caused minor damage at Broome last week.

Port Hedland had been expected to open on Saturday morning, after the Bureau of Meteorology announced that destructive winds were no longer expected, although heavy rain and strong gusts were forecast in the southwest.

Australia's top iron ore miner, Rio Tinto, uses the port of Dampier, 420 kilometres (260 miles) south of Port Hedland.

Stocks with Active Momentum Getting Hammered: The JM Smucker Company (NYSE:SJM)
The Southern Company (NYSE:SO) has a market cap of $47.29 billion and over the last 12 months, SO has declined by -3.69%. The company has a market capitalization of $13,990.00, a PE ratio of 24.93, a P/E/G ratio of 2.15 and a beta of 0.66.

There has been plenty of rain - but no widespread destruction - as a result of Cyclone Joyce.

The category one storm moved closer to the Kimberley coast overnight.

"The safety of our people is our highest priority and we are closely monitoring conditions relating to the cyclone", Fortescue Chief Executive Nev Power said in a statement emailed to Reuters.

Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Craig Earl-Spurr said it was unlikely to reach the previously expected strength of category three.

"It's expected to continue moving towards the south-west as a category one, and continue to bring gales to the West Kimberley coast".

Pastoralists in the Kimberley are delighted, including the Mandora cattle station which received more than 200mm and its first heavy rain since Broome.
