Satellite image of Cyclone Yasi over Australia
I was holidaying in Cairns only a few weeks ago and have been following the news about Cyclone Yasi with some interest. Looks like it’s going to be a devastating storm, only weeks after other parts of Queensland suffered serious floods.

I wonder how many photos were taken in Australia last week? Definitely a lot, that dust storm was some crazy weather.
The worst dust storm in decades hit Australia on Wednesday, blanketing Sydney in red dust, and snarling up the transport system as earthquakes, giant hailstones and even a tornado swept the east of the country.
Gale-force winds dumped thousands of tonnes of red desert dust on Australia’s biggest city, shrouding it in an eerie orange haze and coating the iconic Sydney Opera House in a fine layer of powder.
