In 1988 Herbie was the last cyclone to cause gales at Geraldton crossing near Shark Bay. It also caused flooding of the Irwin and Greenough Rivers inundating Dongara. Prior to that we also had Hazel in 1979. Considerable damage occurred to buildings, trees, pasture and stock feed in the northern agricultural area especially around Geraldton.
