SEVERE THUNDERSTORMS ARE STARTING TO DEVELOPING IN A VERY FAVOURABLE ENVIRONMENT

Weather Situation: Tropical moisture feeding south into the Lasseter District ahead of a trough is providing a favourable environment for intense thunderstorms to develop.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include Yulara, Hermannsburg, Curtin Springs, Watarrka and Uluru.

The Northern Territory Emergency Service advises that people should:
* secure loose outside objects
* ensure pets and animals are safe
* avoid remaining in the open when storms threaten
* pull over if it is raining heavily and you cannot see, park with your hazard lights on until the rain clears
* avoid driving into water of unknown depth and current
* for emergency help in floods, storms and cyclones, contact the NTES on 132 500. For more safety tips visit www.securent.nt.gov.au
