Pictures are now emerging from the cyclone ravished areas in North Queensland. When Yasi hit, it hit big. The worst-affected areas included Mission Beach, Cardwell, Tully, Innisfail and Silkwood. Hundreds of thousands of homes lost power, hundreds lost roofs or sustained other heavy damage.
And there was the human toll. One man has been confirmed dead. Now, as far north Queensland begins its long road to recovery and as a weakened Yasi continues its march inland, the reconstruction will begin. Here are some pictures I recorded from the TV.
