Cyclone Debbie is just hours away from making landfall in north Queensland, possibly as a category five system, where winds are already hitting buildings "like a freight train".
Evacuation centres are designed to be a safe place to wait out a cyclone â?? not be a home away from home.
Cyclone Debbie is maintaining its intensity as it moves towards the Queensland coast, with meteorologists predicting it will make landfall about 1pm.
