Cyclone Yasi update

Northern Australia, still affected and recovering (depending on what part) from huge floods is getting hit with one of the largest storms in a very long while right now. Cyclone Yasi has wind of up to 186mph and has an eye about 20 miles wide.

From the article:
Witnesses reported roofs flying off, buildings shaking and trees being flattened by the gales. Officials say Yasi will cause the sea to surge, causing flooding at low levels.

To put it in perspective how huge this storm is, to the right is a picture of Yasi, with Hurrican Katrina below it.

Already people are being turned away from full shelters, in addition to emergency supplies being low because of the recent floods.
