Tropical Cyclone Debbie is just hours from reaching the north Queensland coast.
More than 25,000 people need to be evacuated from low-lying areas in Mackay by midnight with fears incoming Tropical Cyclone Debbie could cause inundation of up to 2.5 metres above highest tide.
Cyclone Debbie has the potential to wipe out fruit, vegetable and sugar cane crops worth more than one billion dollars, devastating regional communities and sending prices soaring at the green grocers.
