Cyclone Marcia has left a trail of destruction along central Queensland.

A category 5 storm hit Australia over the weekend. The worst hit area was the coastal town of Yeppoon, north of Rockhampton, where winds had reached 285km/h.

Many areas of north-east Australia are just coming to terms with the storm. Over 1500 houses were damaged in the storm and 60,000 house lost power. Many communities are still without power.

Experts have predicted that the storm will cost $1.1 billion.

Its scary to think about something this dangerous so close to home. My thoughts are with the people who got hurt and their families. Everyone is talking about how bad it is that lots of people lost their houses, but at the end of the day they are just buildings that can be rebuilt with some hard work and some good materials. Whats really sad is the people who would or could have gotten hurt.
