Coastal towns in Western Australia have begun cleaning up after Tropical Cyclone 10S (Dominic) blew through yesterday morning, reports ABC News Australia.

The category 2 cyclone caused flooding, as over 200 millimeters of rain fell on the area. Its over-135 km/h winds also caused damage to power lines, roofs and trees in towns such as Onslow.

However, the alert has been lifted, ports and mining operations have reopened, and the clean-up has commenced.

Here, clouds can be seen breaking up and moving away, reopening the skies above the region.
