SYDNEY, March 13. /TASS/. Tropical cyclone Olwyn has hit Australia’s western coast, Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology said on Thursday. The cyclone, accompanied by torrential rains, is moving south-ward along the coast line.
The cyclone has intensified to a category three, with wind gusts reaching up to 55 km/h near the epicenter. A red alert has been issued for people in coastal communities of Exmouth, Onslow and Coral Bay.
Meanwhile, Australian Manufacturing Workers Union accused US company Chevron of gross negligence toward its 1,600 employees on Barrow Island, who are developing a local coastal gas deposit. Barrow Island, located 50km from the continent, was hit by the cyclone on Thursday, but Chevron refused to evacuate its workers. The company’s representatives say no standard work procedures were violated and safety regulations were closely followed, adding that no one was harmed in the incident.
