Tropical Cyclone Ului Is Going To Australia

Tropical Cyclone Ului is expected to hit North Queensland, Australia early Sunday.

It is expected to cause strong winds of 170 km per hour (105 miles per hour) and heavy rains.

Strong winds can damage tress, plants and not very strong houses.

The heavy rains can cause flooding.

This is a disaster.

There may be very high waves too as what happened in Fiji during Tropical Cyclone Tomas.

Tropical Cyclone Ului hit Solomon Islands earlier this week.

It caused floods and the strong winds damaged and destroyed homes, plants and trees.

People in the areas may have to move so that they won’t be hit by the storm.

I think that somebody should help them to move from there by super sonic jets.

Super sonic jets can fly faster!

Three Countries Hit By Earthquakes

These are the news from CNN:

A pair of earthquakes hit Solomon Islands Monday morning, and another struck the Philippines, according to the U.S. Geological Service.

One quake, with a magnitude of 5.3, hit the Philippines at 5:38 a.m. (4:38 p.m. Sunday ET), near the eastern-most island of Mindanao, the agency reported.

The Solomon Islands experienced a 6.3-magnitude quake at 8:48 a.m. (4:48 p.m. Sunday ET), and another 7.2-magnitude tremor hit less than an hour later.

The quake shook Tajikistan’s mountainous Gorno-Badakhshan province about 7:15 a.m. local time.

The 20,000 people were left homeless in the villages of Rog and Gishkon, where 1,050 mud dwellings were destroyed, according Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency.

The U.S. Geological Survey classified the quake as a magnitude 5.3. It was centered 80 km (50 miles) north of Korough, Tajikistan, and was about 44.5 km (27.7 miles) below the Earth’s surface, the USGS said.

Earthquake is a disaster.

Earthquake can kill many people and animals.

If a strong earthquake happens in the sea it can cause a tsunami.

Tsunami is also a disaster and can kill many people and animals.

A lot of tsunamis happened in Japan.

Japan is in Asia, in the western Pacific Ocean.

Solomon Islands is near Papua New Guinea in the western Pacific Ocean.


The Philippines is in Southeast Asia in the western Pacific Ocean.
