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.
TCs downgraded to tropical lows but severe weather continues in some areas of NT, QLD and NSW. For warnings see: http://t.co/wdUcA3jLa8— BOM Australia (@BOM_au) 21 февраля 2015
