Sources indicate that only those who died and could actually be identified were included in the death toll. Perhaps hundreds more were killed, especially among the indigenous communities of the area. Locals reported that entire Aboriginal settlements were wiped out, but these deaths were not recorded. 9,000 homes were destroyed, out of a city of 43,500 people living in 12,000 residences. Many buildings were not built to withstand cyclonic forces, despite being in the cyclone belt.
