Updated 12:50 p.m. ET, March 9

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) A cyclone barreled toward northeastern Australia on Wednesday, as residents of the sparsely populated region's island resorts and coastal communities fled or fortified their homes.

Cyclone Ingrid had wind gusts up to 175 mph on Wednesday, and forecasters warned that if it struck a town directly it could do more damage than one that killed 65 people in the northern city of Darwin in 1974.

Ingrid was expected to hit northern Queensland state early Thursday.

It bore down on communities spanning north about 220 miles from Port Douglas, a tourist site visited by former President Clinton and a jump-off site for the Great Barrier Reef. Several Aboriginal communities near Coen, a tiny settlement of 250 people, were evacuated ahead of the storm, said Claire Bosanko of Queensland's Counter-Disaster and Rescue Services.

Most communities in the cyclone-prone region have cyclone shelters and evacuation centers. The cyclone was downgraded Wednesday from the maximum category 5 storm to category 4.

Severe cyclones are the Southern Hemisphere equivalent to tropical storms and hurricanes in the Northern Hemisphere.

it was a fizzer, not much happened a few trees down, and a storm surge, some flooding from king tides affected by the cyclone and that was about it.

im more worried about the twister that hit greymouth in new zealand than the cyclone that hit my state.

Yes me too, I was fascinated to hear about the twister in New Zealand. It was a bit away from anywhere I have ever heard of twisters.
It reminded me of the twister that hit the southern coastal new south wales town of Merimbula and tore a narrow path of total destruction back in 95 or 96.

Ingrid was a fizzer alright, all it has left us with is much rain. There is another cyclone seemingly forming in the Coral Sea and one coming in The Western Australian coast today.
