Cyclone ravages remote Australia town, resort


A remote tourist resort was virtually destroyed and a small aboriginal town damaged on Wednesday when a severe cyclone slammed into the northern Australian coast for the third time, officials said.

Cyclone Ingrid, packing winds of up to 260 kmh (162 mph), hit the tiny town and aboriginal reserve of Kalumburu, about 500 km (310 miles) southwest of the Northern Territory capital of Darwin, and then devastated the exclusive Faraway Bay resort.
