Cyclone Debbie shuts down Queensland coal mines

Report summary

Tropical cyclone Debbie made landfall early on 28th March 2017 near Bowen and Mackay in Queensland. The cyclone has resulted in multiple mine closures and declarations of force majeure on shipments, suspension of railings on the Newlands, Goonyella and Moura networks and closure of port terminals at Abbot Point, DBCT and Hay Point. The Blackwater network was also closed Wednesday afternoon and RG Tanna terminal at the Port of Gladstone closed Thursday morning. There is still uncertainty about the extent of the impact on mines and infrastructure, given heavy rainfall is continuing and assessment of sites is being hampered by road closures and flooding.
