At 2.47pm WST the Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) cancelled the warning for Tropical Cyclone Savannah on Cocos (Keeling) Islands.

This afternoon the Cocos Emergency Management Committee met and agreed to cancel the yellow alert issuing an all clear to the Cocos community.

Please ensure your family, friends and neighbours are aware that the Cyclone has passed.

People are reminded to be cautious when going outdoors as there may be some fallen trees and loose sheeting and debris. BoM have advised that rough seas and a northerly swell are likely to impact the lagoon area today and on Friday, so please take care when on the water.

I would like to thank Territory Controller, Sergeant Anna Swain for her strong leadership and effort in keeping the community safe. Special thanks also to the members of the Cocos Emergency Management Committee and the many volunteers whose assistance was greatly appreciated.
