一场大风暴即将袭击澳大利亚西海岸,居民严阵以待,超市日用品已经快被扫光。

周四晚上,热带气旋Joyce将登陆西澳北部的旅游小镇布鲁姆(Broome)。

据9号台报道,为迎接大风暴来临,居民开始囤积“干粮”,在小镇超市,货架上的新鲜水果和蔬菜一下就被扫得干干净净。

警方还向民众发出警告–不要举行“风暴派对”,仅两周内该州就已经遭遇两次“大风暴”袭击。一遇到恶劣天气,民众就开始囤积大量的酒,这一备具争议的做法日渐盛行。

“不要喝太多酒,如果你需要转移,或者你的房子发生什么事情,你需要理智,这样你才能让自己和家人挪到安全的地方,”高级警长巴威克(Brendan Barwick)说道,“另一件重要的事是确保房子周围所有东西安全,还要确保你的车有油。”

紧急救援部门表示,人们需要采取行动,躲在庇护场所,尽管有担心称这场“飓风”会导致灾难发生。

在Kimberley的Cape Leveque 和原住民社区Bidyadanga之间的地区,包括布鲁姆,已经发出黄色警报,意味着民众的生命和家园将受到威胁。

在Cockatoo Island和Cape Leveque之间的地区,以及位于Kimberley和Pilbara之间的地区,目前仍然是蓝色警报。

目前一个重大风险是,周五早些时候它将有可能发展为一个严重的热带气旋。

据预测,周四这场风暴将在Beagle Bay和Wallal Downs之间形成破坏性的大风,风力高达130公里/小时。
