Here is based an Australian meteo station staffed with 4 personnel. The weather monitoring station was opened in 1921 and has radio transmitter to provide cyclone warning service.

In February 2011, the eye of Cyclone Yasi moved over Willis Island as Category 5 storm. Station's staff was evacuated a day early. The wind reached speeds of 185 kph (115 mph). The cyclone was so strong that even altered the shape of the island and cleared much of its vegetation.
