I believe it made it to Category 5.

Landfall between Cairns and Townsville (actually between Innisfail and Cardwell), Queensland, on Feb. 2, 2011

Thankfully, it abated considerably upon landfall. Down to a Cat 3 - 2. Still heading inland, toward Broken Hill, expected there as a Cat 1. It was bad, but could have been much worse.

Now the floods we had a week or two ago, they were something else. I heard a weatherman describe them as going to be of 'biblical proprtions' before they occurred, and I though "hmmm, that's over the top a bit". It wasn't.

With winds recorded at 186 mph, I'm amazed that there were no reported fatalities! Gotta hand it to those Aussies for having enough sense to come in out of the rain.

Yup. Compare and contrast with Katrina.
