Cyclone Larry

I saw on the news yesterday that northern Queensland got hammered by a humongous tropical cyclone, Cyclone Larry. Winds over 180 mph lashed the coast south of Cairns, completely obliterating the town of Innisfail. The AP is reporting thousands left homeless, though thankfully no fatalities were reported. I know how much it sucks to be in the path of a Cat 5 storm, and the long weeks afterwards of clean up and hardship.
