Cyclone George reeks havoc

Tropical Storm News: Australia
March 04, 2007
Tropical Cyclone George is heading for Western Australia after battering most of Australia's Northern Territory. The cyclone caused widespread flooding and cut off access to major roads, leaving hundreds stranded.
The storm has been upgraded to a category one cyclone and meteorologists expect George to gain momentum as it travels westward.
The amount of rain dumped on the Northern Territory over the last week smashed records and flooded townships especially Adelaide.
The area is known for its large population of saltwater crocodiles and police were warning locals of the risks.

"This is the first time the track has been closed ... It's a VERY UNUSUAL weather system ... The track has been designed for 100-year flood events based on historical data in the territory."
