Cyclones in Queensland
Cyclones often produce winds in excess of 200km/h which can cause extensive damage to property and turn debris into dangerous missiles.
Cyclones can also bring flooding rains, which cause further damage to property, and increase risk of drowning.
Cyclones can cause huge seas, putting vessels in danger both in harbour and out at sea.
Most deaths from cyclones occur as a result of drowning, collapsed buildings, or flying debris which becomes lethal in high winds.
