Tropical Cyclone Joyce forced the closure of Port Hedland for about 43 hours, although it is not expected to have much impact on iron ore export volumes. The cyclone resulted in heavy rains near iron ore mines operated by BHP Billiton, Rio Tinto and Fortescue Metals Group in the Pilbara region, with 132 millimetres of rain recorded at Barimunya over four days and 102 millimetres recorded at Solomon Airport. Meanwhile, some 105 millimetres of rain fell at Marble Bar in a 24-hour period.
