It was upgraded to a category 4 cyclone on Monday night.

The eye of the cyclone passed over the Whitsunday Islands on Tuesday morning with wind gusts on Hamilton Island reaching 222km/h.

Premier Palaszczuk said Queensland’s worst cyclone in six years is expected to make landfall near Bowen about 12.50pm today (local time).

Those in Debbie’s path have been told to stay put, stay calm and wait for the all-clear.
