Tropical Cyclone Fay was beginning to move ashore over Western Australia on March 25, 2004, when the Terra MODIS instrument captured this image. With winds of 139 kilometers per hour (86 miles per hour), and gusts up to 166 kilometers per hour (104 miles per hour), the storm has ripped up trees and closed roads in Broome, on Australia’s west coast, but little other damage has been reported. The storm shifted from its predicted course to move south-south-west before coming ashore.

That looks like it is going to be big, but then again I wouldn't know because I know nothing about Cyclones :D
