Cyclone Yasi

So you can visualise the size of this cyclone...

In the satellite photo the cloud cover stretches from the southern tip of New Guinea to the northern tip of New Caledonia.That's 1130-ish miles. Open Google Earth, select the Ruler and, starting at the southern tip of Florida, draw a line North for 1130 miles.

OR

Start at London and draw a line 1820km across Europe and down the length of Italy.

That's the area the cloud from Yasi covers.The actual cyclonic area is 500km across.
