TOWNSVILLE, AUSTRALIA - FEBRUARY 04: Prime Minister Julia Gillard shakes hands with defence personal at the Disaster Centre on February 4, 2011 in Townsville, Australia. State Emergency Service crews and volunteers are in north Queensland today to begin clean-up after Yasi damaged hundreds of properties in the region. No deaths or serious injuries have yet been reported following the cyclone which struck land as a category five storm around midnight on Wednesday. Yasi has been downgraded but is still considered dangerous and is expected to dump heavy region across inland areas of Queensland over the coming days. (Photo by Ian Hitchcock/Getty Images) less
