Below are links to a series of map animations showing the passage of TC Steve across northern Australia and down the west coast, a satellite image gallery, some reports on TC Steve.
This remarkable cyclone began it's life as a 'midget' system in the Coral Sea yet packed a real punch when it hit Cairns even though the gales were only 40 km in radius! It travelled right across Northern Australia and a considerable distance down the W coast, degenerating into a depression as it moved inland across SW Australia, into the Southern Ocean, and generated gales along the coast of South Australia before passing to the S of Tasmania! It effectively travelled three quarters of the way around the Australian continent as an identifiable storm system!
