Grim warning as Debbie bears down: 'This is a monster cyclone'
Description: CYCLONE Debbie has come within five kilometers of being declared a Category Five storm as it bears down on the Queensland coast. The Bureau of Meterology declared the tropical cyclone a "severe" Category Four system with wind gusts up to 250 kilometers an hour. However it's just shy being declared the most severe Category Five. The "very destructive core" is to cross the coast between Cape Upstart and Cape Hillsborough (north of Mackay) with wind gusts potentially to 275km/h near the center of the system.
