Tropical Cyclone Uesi is expected to hit Lord Howe Island by Thursday night, with the Bureau of Meteorology warning of gale-force winds up to 120 kilometres per hour.

"It will slide to the west of Lord Howe Island, where we expect damaging winds and large swell as early as Thursday evening," he said.

Mr Adams said the island, which was isolated and without mobile phone coverage,"organises itself differently". Mr Funnell said the cyclone is also expected to produce large swells, high tides and strong winds along parts of New South Wales coastline.
