Cyclone Marcia made landfall as a category 5 cyclone and left a trail of destruction over Yeppoon and Rockhampton in Queensland, Australia.
The cyclone was at category 5 when it grazed Yeppoon battering the coastal town with 285km/h winds. It was downgraded to category 3 when it hit Rockhampton.
The weather system weakened followed the coast south crossing over Brisbane today. There was no reported damage in the Redcliffe area however Unity Water’s sewage system could not cope with the influx of water and back-flow issues are still being experienced.
Council officials had the numerous jetties in our area closed in case of storm surge.
