Ex-tropical cyclone Debbie seemed to reinvigorate passing west of Brisbane during late March 2017. Despite severe weather warnings from the Bureau of Meteorology, cohesive public information concerning damaging winds was not evident. The qualitative analysis compares formal and informal media reports of the severe weather case and compares them to official warnings. The findings indicate that cohesive public information and consequent preparedness was hindered by media reporting leading up to the event.
