The gale force winds toppling a 38m-high construction crane, demolishing the ABC's radio studios in Bunbury, south of Perth. A narrow escape for journalists inside who'd left the newsroom just moments before. I just heard this screeching sound as though train was headed my way. I turned around and my whole office was just demolished. Boats torn from their moorings and tossed to the beach. Businesses across the south-west town devastated. First there was leaving 100,000 homes in the dark. Power cut across the city with dozens of traffic lights out.

As the big clean-up continues, the damage bill is estimated to run into the millions. Brad Hodson, Ten News. Medical staff and police have been shocked by a family tragedy that's still unfolding. A mother arrived at a clinic in Melbourne with her two daughters, both with horrific injuries. Doctor couldn't save the life of one of them, a 2-year-old. Her sister remains in hospital tonight in a serious condition. How the children suffered such terrible injuries hasn't been disclosed. They were were taken to the clinic on Friday, but it's only today police that were prepared to release any information. Coping with menopause will be easier for more than a million middle-aged Australians. A new form of hormone replacement therapy has hit the market promising fewer side-effects. Meet the new face of HRT - The roof of this man's house caved in and a series of small tornadoes. bringing thunderstorms around 6:00 this morning A cold front crossed the city and here it is. Turned up at work this morning a big flash of lightning, a loud explosion and then the windows started breaking in. You just stand there and you don't know where to start really, but what we've got to do, we've got to secure the shop and we've got to make it safe. Emergency crews responded to more than 600 calls for help. a super small oestrogen patch that could help ease the lives of more than a million Australian women. These new ones are literally thumbnail sized. Just three years ago the World Health Organization recommended women avoid HRT due to a concerning number of side effects. Now experts are hoping this little patch may begin to ease those fears. They say it's a lower dose of oestrogen those using it in the long term, to consult their doctor. But for 58-year-old Judy Ashcroft the benefits from this new HRT outweigh any risks. It's simple to use, I put it on twice a week and to date I've had no side effects and it just helps me to live a normal life. Natarsha Belling, Ten News. When we come back - survival against the odds for a fisherman lost at sea. I think it's got to be one of the world's most amazing escapes. We'll tell you how long he had to tread shark-infested water before help came. Also tonight - a lawyer takes up Vivian Alvarez's case. I can only assume it's based on her physical appearance. How many millions of dollars compensation he'll be seeking from the Australian taxpayer. And later in the news - why the brains behind one of TV's most successful sitcoms is calling it a day. It's a bittersweet feeling. and is safer than oral treatments. Oral therapy goes through the gut to the liver and the liver increases the production of proteins, one of which may increase clotting factors. Estadot is worn on the abdomen and releases a small but constant amount of oestrogen straight into the blood supply. It's most suited for those who've had hysterectomies but can be used as a combination therapy for other women. If oestrogen is given without the other hormone progesterone, there's an increased risk of cancer of the womb and that's prevented by taking a proper dose of progesterone. Like many medications these new patches do have side effects which may cause an increased risk of cancer or blood clots. Women are warned, especially

has jackpotted to $4 million. a truckload of cash. $4 million jackpot. Another honour tonight for WA burns specialist Dr Fiona Wood. The Perth surgeon was named Australia's most trusted person in a survey by 'Reader's Digest' magazine. headed by former Federal Police commissioner Mick Palmer, to run its course. We have an inquiry and when the results of the Palmer inquiry are known Immigration Minister Amanda Vanstone gets a mention too at 100th The most trusted professions are ambulance officers, firefighters and mothers. Taxpayers may have to fork out millions of dollars for the Federal Government's wrongful deportation of an Australian woman to the Philippines. Lawyers are on the way to see Vivian Alvarez and possibly launch legal proceedings. The case of Vivian Alvarez could become more than just an embarrassing mistake for the Federal Government. As protesters demand a royal commission, a team of lawyers is preparing an unprecedented compensation claim, possibly in excess of $2 million. Harry Freedman is on his way to the Philippines to build a case for the Alvarez family. He says the illegal deportation of an Australian citizen Dr Wood is also Australian of the Year. She's best known for pioneering work treating burns victims from the Bali bombings. Second on the list of 100 most trusted people is singer Olivia Newton-John. Third is the Tasmanian-born Crown Princess Mary. is uncharted legal territory and could be viewed as the worst type of racial discrimination. I don't have all the facts but I can only assume it's based on her physical appearance. The PM admits something has gone badly wrong, but wants the current private investigation,

to our imaginations as to what could happen to anybody. Deborah Knight, Ten News. It's being called one of the world's great survival stories - a man rescued after 14 hours treading water. He fell off a tanker 20 nautical miles off the Queensland coast. that he ended up in the water a little under-dressed for what became a very cold swim. He had, I believe, a pair of underpants and that was it. His clothing, as we understand it, was found in his cabin. Once rescued, he stayed on the fishing boat then the Government will have something further to say about the handling of the matter. Ms Alvarez' focus now is on receiving care for her ailing health, and reconnecting with her family, including two sons whom she hasn't seen in more than four years. While the Federal Government is refusing to comment on potential compensation payouts for Vivian Alvarez, it will confirm all her medical costs will be covered, along with any welfare payments she may be entitled to on her return to Australia. But lawyers fear her tragic case could be just the first of many. It's a horrible thought but if this could happen to an Australian citizen, it opens the door until a nearby rescue helicopter could winch him to safety, suffering hypothermia, dehydration and a broken arm. It was a weekend fishing trip that quickly turned into a rescue mission for three mates just north of Bowen. The sound come again and it sounded like "Help!" Sure does, and I said we better investigate this one. 41-year-old Joseph Stinchcombe from Ipswich spent a very cold Saturday night treading shark-infested water 20 nautical miles off the coast of Bowen. I think it's got to be one of the world's most amazing escapes. And it nearly ended in a painfully near miss. We couldn't hear it for the motor going and we weren't looking for someone bobbing around in the middle of the ocean. The 80m tanker, 'The Barrington', was docked in Cairns today. No-one on board would comment. Although he's still too exhausted to tell his tale police do know

He was just so glad to be alive and was so exhausted that he spent a lot of time looking around being thankful and taking stock of the situation. Rescuers doubt he could have survived a second night alone in deep water. being thankful and taking stock of the situation. Rescuers doubt he could have survived a second night alone in deep water. Everyone's surprised that he survived the first night, so a second night, I would say about as close to zero as you could get. It's believed the man's been reunited with his wife, and once recovered will have an amazing story to tell. Brett La Frantz, Ten News. When we come back - the Cannes premiere of the latest Stars Wars blockbuster. The stars of one of TV's most successful sitcoms jostle for souvenirs as the program calls it a day. And in Sports Tonight - the future is bright for Australia's queen of extreme snowboarding.

The much-loved stars of the hugely successful sitcom have lined the red carpet to say goodbye. Nine years and 210 episodes later, the sitcom family everybody loved to love, or loved to hate, is splitting up. Yeah, you know, it's a bittersweet feeling. Three months after recording the final episode, the cast was reunited on the red carpet for a final goodbye and, just as timing was everything in making the show a success... ..timing was the number one reason for calling it quits. Star and co-creator Ray Romano, who turned his own family's trials and tribulations into an award-winning comedy, says he's taken the laughs as far as he can and sometimes even further. I worry about the safety of a lot of husbands in this country, probably in Australia too, because women come up and say, "Oh, my husband's as big an idiot as Raymond," and I go, "OK..." Patricia Heaton is now working on her own spin-off sitcom. A mum of four boys in real life, she believes the secret of the show was its real-life characters in almost real-life settings.
