Effects of Cyclone Seroja:

Broome supermarkets run out of fresh fruit and vegetables due to roads flooding

Broome in West-Australia has become a victim of cyclone Seroja, as supermarket shelves there are bare of fresh produce. Although Broome lies more than 1,300 km from the Seroja’s epicentre in Kalbarri, it has suffered from restricted freight movements due to flooded roads in the Pilbara and Kimberley. Supermarket chains Coles and Woolworths have promised to replenish depleted stock in their stores by Thursday afternoon.

A spokeswoman for Woolworths said emergency relief plans were now being enacted to ensure “key essentials” were being delivered. She added that deliveries were expected to arrive in Broome, Karratha, Derby and Port Headland on Thursday morning.
