The last time a cyclone managed to get further down the coast was Cyclone Alby in the 1970's.
It looks like we might be in for a bit of a rough ride over the weekend if the cyclone travels according to the Bureau of Meteorology’s forecast maps.

So to be on alert, from Jurien Bay to Albany, with possible effects felt on Sunday, is indeed, amazing.
Also there are two others off the coast of Queensland, so they are wtching and waiting also.
