Port Hedland outer waters when cyclone strikes
Tropical cyclone DAMIEN closed down Port Hedland, Pilbara region of Western Australia, with gale-force wind and heavy rain. All cargo operations suspended, dozens of ships, mostly Panamax and Capesize bulk carriers, are thronged off port in outer anchorage area, some being at anchor, but the majority slowly cruising around, weathering out the cyclone. Port Hedland is one of the largest iron ore loading ports in the world and the largest in Australia.
