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’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.
