Australia In the Crosshairs. Again

Glenda was the Good Witch in "The Wizard of Oz," but she is most definitely not the Good Cyclone.

A tropical cyclone by that name has intensified into a powerful Catagory Five storm as it runs parallel to the sparsely populated Pilbara coast in Western Australia.

Glenda is the second of six cyclones in the current season to reach Catagory Five.

Cyclone Larry, also a Cat Five, tore into northern Queensland on Australia's east coast earlier in the month, causing widespread destruction but no deaths.

May people in Glenda's path be as fortunate.
