Australia moving 2,000 people from powerful cyclone's path

Australia is evacuating about 2,000 people from part of northern Australia ahead of a powerful cyclone expected to hit on Saturday

Evacuees were being moved by air and road Thursday from remote, mostly indigenous communities on the Northern Territory's east coast to the territory's capital, Darwin.

Northern Territory Chief Minister Michael Gunner said a state of emergency had been declared in part of the west coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria, where Trevor is expected to make landfall.
