Canada’s tourism industry braces for Hurricane Florence: Axios
AUSTRALIA’S tourism industry is bracing for the potential impact of Hurricane Florence, which could hit the country in the coming weeks.
The country’s economy has been on life support since the cyclone struck early on Wednesday, and its economy has also been affected by previous tropical storms in the past.
A report from the International Association of Tourism Organisations (IATA) has warned that the cyclones impact tourism and the economy could take up to six months to fully recover.
Australia’s tourism sector has been hit by cyclones before.
The Cyclone Yolanda in 2009 wiped out a record of more than 1.8 million Australian jobs.
The cyclone in 2015, which devastated the island of Vanuatu, left more than 3 million people homeless.
