    Australia prepared for flash floods and gusty winds after two tropical cyclones wreaked havoc, destroying homes, uprooting trees and leaving tens of thousands without power in the state of Queensland and the Northern Territories.

    The cleanup is underway in the areas affected by Category 5 cyclone Marcia and category 4 cyclone Lam that have since been downgraded to tropical lows.

    Australian authorities have not received reports of serious or fatal injuries.
