Cyclone Yasi on Google Maps

Aus-emaps Severe Weather Map

Queensland in Australia just can't catch a break at the moment. Fresh from devastating floods the area is now braced for the impact of category 5 cyclone Yasi.

The latest satellite image of the approaching cyclone and wind speed information for the impact area can be monitored live on aus-emaps.com’s Hazards Monitor pages (courtesy of the Bureau of Meteorology web services). If you turn on the 'Clouds' overlay on this Google Map you can view the satellite image.

Aus-emaps has also produced a shareable reference map of the cyclone. The map includes a kmz file that contains the latest BOM update on tropical cyclone Yasi.
