But it will be business as usual for public and private sector workers. Chief Minister Paul Henderson said wild weather this afternoon could be dangerous for students leaving school. We could be seeing gale force winds, very heavy rain and we dont want young children trying to get home, Mr Henderson said. But Mr Henderson said public servants are expected to be at work today. Of course if people have to stay home to care for their children they should be contacting their supervisor (this) morning. Mr Henderson also urged private employers to let workers who had to look after children have the day off. Many childcare centres have also chosen to close but parents are advised to contact their provider to find out if they will be operating today. All non-urgent elective surgery at Royal Darwin Hospital has also been postponed for today. Director of Medical Services Dr Sara Watson said patients booked for surgery were being contacted. Outpatient appointments and all other services, including the emergency department, will continue as normal. Last night, Darwin Airport was expected to operate normally, unless the weather deteriorates. Passengers are urged to contact their airline to confirm their flight. Charles Darwin Uni Casuarina and Palmerston campuses are closed. Darwin City Council has closed its swimming pools at Parap, Nightcliff and Casuarina. Make emergency plan for your animals CYCLONES can be just as traumatic for animals as they are for people, Top End vets have warned. Pet, horse and livestock owners are urged to prepare for a cyclone brewing off the coast near Darwin. People should have an emergency kit with dry food and fresh drinking water in spill-proof containers and an animal evacuation plan.
