At 06:00 UTC (1 a.m. ET) Laurence's center was located near 14.6 South and 125.4 East. Its center was just northeast of Derby, which is located on the coast in the Western Australia territory. Despite it's proximity to the coast, Laurence's winds were near 86 mph, making it a Category One Cyclone. It was moving to the southwest near 7 mph.
Observations from Troughton Island indicated sustained winds as high as 85 mph (74 knots) as Laurence passed 12 hours before.
Laurence is now expected to track deeper into interior Australia and dissipate in the next two days.
