    Sugar cane fields also felt the full brunt of winds, with growers estimating losses to run into millions of dollars.

    The state government of Queensland has set up a disaster relief fund, and federal aid has also been made available to victims, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation said in a report.

    Resorts along the coastal towns near the Great Barrier Reef were evacuated earlier last week in anticipation of the storm.
