Cyclone Larry Leaves Thousands Homeless
Further proof that global wraming is coming to get you after the hardest storm in 30 years trashed northeastern Queensland on Monday.
Metal roofs littered streets, wooden houses lay in splinters and banana plantations were stripped bare after the most powerful cyclone to hit Australia in three decades lashed the country’s eastern coast Monday.
Amazingly, the storm caused no reported fatalities, and only 30 people suffered minor injuries. But the damage from Cyclone Larry, a Category 5 storm with winds up to 180 mph, was expected to run into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
