"Cyclone Larry crossed the coast at Innisfail, Far North Queensland, as a category 4 storm at approximately 6am on 20th March 2006. Cyclone Larry was a lot stronger than the recent Cyclone Anthony (2011) and the previous Cyclone Justin (1997), with wind gusts of up to 240 kilometres per hour recorded near the centre of the storm. Cyclone Larry destroyed many farms and banana crops and a lot of farmers lost their livelihoods." Joel Sam
