Shortly after a Tropical Cyclone Bianca hit Western Australia, Tropical Cyclone Anthony hit the region near Bowen packing winds of 130km/h and causing extensive flooding with flood warnings extending from Mackay and Townsville.

Meanwhile, yet another tropical cyclone Yasi is anticipated to hit the Queensland coast later in the week in perhaps the first season to produce above average number of tropical cyclones in years. This is most likely related to a very strong La Nina phase and above average sea surface temperatures in the Coral Sea.
