In the path of destruction - Part 3

Tropical Cyclone Ului re-intesified to a category 3 cyclone and hit the Queensland coast near Airlie Beach at 1.30am Sunday 21 March 2010. With gusts in excess of 200 km/hr (125 miles/hr) it caused over forty thousand homes to lose power, airports are closed, boats have been washed ashore and houses have been damaged. They are characterising it as a significant event with severe damage in some pockets, but not a catastrophic event. Thankfully there have been no serious injuries or fatalities.

It's now being referred to as Ex-Tropical Cyclone Ului.
