Tropical Cyclone Hubert

2 - 7 April 2006


A low formed well north of the Pilbara coast early in April reaching cyclone intensity on 5 April. Hubert intensified to category 2 the following day as it moved southwards towards the west Pilbara coast. Hubert passed near Barrow Island and then made landfall just west of Mardie on the evening of 7 April as a category 1 cyclone. Hubert was not a strong rain-producing system, although a few sites registered over 100 mm of rain. Aside from economic losses owing to disruptions to industry production and shipping, there were no significant impacts associated with Hubert .
