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 the high tide level.
Tropical cyclones have long posed a serious threat to Queensland coastal communities, but after almost every disaster there have been lessons learnt to help people better prepare.
