<p>After making landfall late on Thursday along the Great Barrier Reef coast, close to the popular town of Townsville, tropical cyclone Kirrily, a category two storm, was reduced to a tropical low on Friday.</p>
<p>El Nino weather events, which are usually linked to severe occurrences like cyclones, wildfires, droughts, and heatwaves, are now affecting Australia.</p>
<p>64,000 people were without power on Friday as a result of the storm, according to Queensland Premier Steven Miles, who spoke with the Australian Broadcasting Corp.</p>
<p>The majority of power disruptions, according to Ergon Energy spokeswoman Emma Oliveri, were in Townsville. She also said that it was premature to predict when electricity will return.</p>
<p>Three rungs below the most deadly, category two cyclones may tear boats from their moorings and seriously destroy trees, farms, and caravans.</p>
<p>The country’s weather forecaster said that on Friday, the former cyclone will probably deliver regions of northern Queensland heavy rain and maybe severe winds.</p>
<p>On its website, the weather forecaster said that “winds with peak gusts of around 90 km/h (55 mph) are possible.”</p>
<p>Miles said that since “there is a lot of rain still to come,” there was a significant chance of flooding.</p>
<p>Military forces were on ready to help with the cleaning from Kirrily, according to Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.</p>
<p>“The people of far north Queensland have copped a lot in recent times,” a transcript from Albanese’s speech in Canberra said.</p>
<p>Kirrily was the region’s second tropical storm since hurricane Jasper in December, which severely damaged a large portion of the territory.</p>
<p>A heatwave warning was issued for portions of Queensland and its southern neighbor, New South Wales, with the weather forecaster predicting highs in the fortys Celsius on Friday for certain remote sections of Queensland.</p>
<p>According to weather forecaster data, Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, was expected to experience a temperature in the west of the city of 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit), which is more than nine degrees higher than the usual maximum for January.</p>
