    Isn't Kara 20S not 1A?

    Anyway, this system looks like it will be very weak at landfall, and problems, if any, will arise from rainfall. As in the "Australia severe weather" thread, TC Becky is currently active in the coral sea and is strengthening. It is far out to sea at the moment though.
