    0

    YEPPOON, Australia: Two powerful cyclones pounded Australia on Friday and left a trail of destruction with houses ripped apart, trees uprooted and power lines torn down, cutting electricity to thousands of people. Tropical Cyclone Marcia, a category five storm, slammed into the Queensland coast just after 10:00 pm on Thursday (Manila time) with its landfall coming just hours after Cyclone Lam hit further north. The category four Lam caused extensive damage to remote Aboriginal communities near Elcho Island, some 500 kilometers (310 miles) east of Northern Territory capital Darwin, including Milingimbi, Ramingining, and Gapuwiyak.     AFP
