Cyclone Veronica knocks out community radio transmitters

Thursday 28 March, 2019

Tropical cyclone Veronica knocked out two of Ngaarda Media's transmitters in north west WA as it ripped through the north of Australia this week.

The cyclone was unusually large and slow moving, taking many hours to cross the Pilbara coast, with Veronica's destructive winds lasting much longer than a normal cyclone and bringing a year's rainfall to the area in just one day.

The cyclone knocked out the station's Roebourne and Karrath transmitters, but the station's online service and other transmitters are still broadcasting.

Lockdown over! After 57 hours on RED ALERT from Cyclone Veronica, Karratha has been given the all clear.
The Spirit Network covered the progress of the cyclone live and local across the weekend to keep the residents of the Pilbara up to date with the very latest info.
Pablo Miller from Spirit Karratha broadcast for 12 hours from 7AM-7PM on Saturday before evacuating the studio when the Red Alert was called, to be home safe with his family.
