Tropical Cyclone Emily

27 March - 2 April 1972


Emily crossed the Queensland coast just to the southeast of Gladstone while rapidly weakening. Wind damage was confined to trees and sheds. The cyclone had been very severe and generated huge seas. It claimed the lives of 8 seaman in three separate incidents off the southern and central Queensland coasts. Flooding occurred with Kingaroy being isolated for a time and Breakfast Creek flooded some houses in Brisbane.
