128 km Dampier Radar Loop

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 2020. We are currently reviewing available options with a view on reaching an outcome for the Pilbara coast by the end of the calendar year. The community can still access the Port Hedland radar, which features considerable overlapping coverage of the Dampier radar's eastern region, and the Bureau will continue to issue accurate, timely and reliable forecasts to local communities. 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.
