Cyclone Larry

After being stuck in Mission Beach during the cyclone, reporter Michael Madigan and I made it to Innisfail just as people were starting to venture out of their homes to inspect the damage. The devastation was quite incredible with trees on all mountains within 100km stripped of EVERY leaf and many buildings were no more than an empty shell. Albina Lazzarich and her mother cowered in their backyard dog kennel as their house (above) was torn apart.
