512 km composite Dampier Radar

The Bureau's radar at Dampier on the Pilbara coast suffered significant damage as severe Tropical Cyclone Damien passed over the area on Saturday 8th February. The radar is currently out of service and is expected to be for some time. We are now assessing the damage and determining how best to bring the radar back online. In the meantime the Bureau will continue to issue accurate, timely and reliable forecasts and warnings for the Dampier region. The Bureau does not rely on any one system and uses a broad network of data sources, infrastructure, computer modelling and meteorological knowledge to generate its forecasts and warnings. The community can access the Port Hedland radar, which features considerable overlapping coverage of the Dampier radar's eastern region.
