Forecasters estimate the cyclone, at last report 195 kilometres (121 miles) northeast of Mackay, is as destructive as Cyclone Larry, packing savage winds that will whip up big waves and raise sea levels. Larry caused large scale devastation in 2006 with the damage bill estimated at more than 640 million US dollars.

Residents living between Bowen and Bundaberg were being advised to take all necessary cyclone precautions. This included the city of Mackay, which is particularly vulnerable to flooding.

While the category five tropical cyclone continues to run parallel to the coastline, it also has traveled further south than initially anticipated. An emergency services spokeswoman said almost 90 personnel had been deployed to areas around Mackay to help when the storm hits.
