Tropical Cyclone Debbie Update - Statement from Hamilton Island:

Following Tropical Cyclone Debbie, Hamilton Island can confirm the Island has sustained damage due to the long period of time that we were exposed to destructive winds in excess of 200km/h. The extent of the damage is yet to be assessed. 

During this difficult time, the safety and comfort of all has been of paramount importance to the Island and we can confirm that there have been no reports of injury at this time. The Island took all precautionary measures to 'batten down the hatches' and the people and processes were well prepared for the cyclone.

Our top priority is to take care of our guests, staff and residents, clear debris and work closely with our airline partners to ensure all Hamilton Island guests return to their homes safely.

We can confirm that many telecommunications services have been interrupted and for those wanting to enquire about their friends or relatives on the Island we would encourage them to contact our Sydney contact centre on +61 (0) 2 9007 0001.

Hamilton Island Management would like to remind everyone who is on the Island to stay indoors at all times for your own safety until instructed.
