Australia prepares for Cyclone Anthony's 'big ugly sister'

North-eastern Australia is facing a battering from a second tropical cyclone within a week.

Cyclone Anthony hit Queensland after months of flooding, with thousands of homes destroyed and more than $5 billion worth of damage.

Now Cyclone Yasi is expected to hit the north of the state, prompting the authorities to relocate people to safer areas.

Phil Mercer reports from Sydney.
