Rusty should intensify to a significant tropical cyclone with sustained winds at or near 100 knots just prior to landfall at Port Hedland on Wednesday at 27/12Z.

Port Hedland is a major iron ore distribution port that normally has to shut down truck and rail ore transport whenever a cyclone of Cat I or stronger hits the area.
