How is Cyclone Yasi Connected to Climate Change? INTRODUCTION: Traditionally, …
Again, read the points at the top of this post. Analyzing the impact of severe tropical cyclone Yasi on public health infrastructure and the management of noncommunicable diseases. Cyclone Yasi wiped out the crops so the price of the banana increased. The storm which started in the Coral Sea, destroyed hundreds of homes in the northern Queensland towns of Tully, Mission Beach, Innisfail and Cardwell.Yasi was a Category Five storm, the highest level, with winds of about 300 km/h.
Media reports were out in full force early on that this storm could be “one of the worst” of all time. What were the social impacts of Cyclone Yasi in Australia? Tropical cyclones often cause environmental changes far beyond the area where they make landfall. I would have to say that one of the social impacts of the Cyclone was that Australia showed a tremendous resolve on a national level. Before the cyclone, the price of banana was around $3-4 a kilo but it jumped to around $10-15 after the hazard.

The Yasi started to move west-southward movement and began to accelerate towards the tropical Queensland coast.

Franklin, Frederick M. Burkle, Kerrianne Watt, Peter Aitken, Erin C. Smith, Peter Leggat The Impact on People Considering the size of Cyclone Yasi, there were no fatalities with an obvious connection to the Cyclone.

The most devastating and worrying impact was the effect on two endangered species, the Southern Cassowary and the Mahogany Glider and their critically endangered habitat, the Littoral Rainforests. Winds The winds from a Category 1 cyclone cause minimal damage to shrubbery and trees. Cyclone Yasi stripped leaves off canopies of the trees, but many trees have learned to adapt to this environmental disaster by having strong shoots ready to replace the destroyed canopies. Tropical Cyclone Yasi was a tropical cyclone that caused a lot of damage when it reached the Australian coast at about midnight on Wednesday 2 February 2011. Once banana prices go above $5 or $6 a kilo, the consumption drops off dramatically. The development of cyclone yasi is same as normal cyclone but the scale of the cyclone was huge.
