Radar from the city of Mardie indicates that the cyclone should pass just off to the west. Forunately this is a very sparsely populated area of the country.

Microwave satellite imagery continues to indicate the Glenda's eyewall remains intact. This eye should be crossing land in the coming hours. Therefor the most damaging winds remain yet to reach land.

Visisble imagery indicates that the eye has nearly reached shore. In about 12 hours we should have a much better idea as to the impact of the storm.
