An outbreak of disease is the latest fear in the ongoing Queensland flood crisis. Tonight, the focus of the disaster is the town of Emerald, where thousands have been evacuated as the region is swamped.

Late News reporter Emma Dallimore is there. Well Deb, the Nogoa River reached 15.3 metres today.

That was just a little shy of the prediction, which is good news - it means the current flowing in is slowing down. The bad news is that there has been enough to inundate a number of homes and cause some widespread damage across town. Queensland's Premier Anna Bligh joins be now. Premier, what can we expect tonight? Well, it is too early yet to say that this river has peaked. but it's fluctuating up and down We are seeing a slowing so there is a very nervous night of waiting ahead

for the people here in Emerald. We've got emergency crews out monitoring around the town. Of course, any further rain wouldn't help got our fingers crossed so we've also that these clouds are not going to deliver anything. The bureau says it is only a shower, maybe showers across the next couple of days. What do you expect tomorrow? Tomorrow morning we expect to be in a much better position to say that this river has now peaked or not. Once we know it has peaked, people can start to feel a little bit more relaxed. Have you received any advice about potential health threats? There is an awful lot of water lying around. We do anticipate that when it does peak, reasonably quickly. it will start to subside The quality of the water is all being monitored and tested. What kind of assistance can they access? There are a number of sorts of financial assistance that are available, ranging from immediate cash-in-hand

for people who have had to leave home and have just got nothing, so they can buy the essentials like nappies and milk and bread. Then there is, once the waters go down

and people know the sort of damage they've had, on a means-tested basis, if they are not insured, to rectify damage. they can get assistance Premier, thank you very much for your time. Well Deb, as we said, fingers crossed. This may be the worst of it, we're not sure, but hopefully this is the worst that this community will have to bear.

Back to you. Our reporter in Emerald, Emma Dallimore, speaking with Queensland Premier Anna Bligh. A 12-week-old baby and his 3-year-old brother have died after a horrific crash involving a truck in Melbourne. The wreckage of the sedan was sent flying 200m down a busy freeway. Witnesses say the car was stopped in the middle of an on ramp when the truck ploughed into the vehicle while going up to 100km/h. A 3-month-old rear-seat passenger was deceased at the scene. A 3-year-old male passenger also in the car died en route to hospital. The infant's mother survived with serious injuries, while their grandmother, who was sitting in the back seat with them, in hospital. is still fighting for her life The truck driver suffered shock.

A last salute to one of the world's greatest adventurers Sir Edmund Hillary.

His family joined by dignitaries, his beloved Sherpas, and thousands of New Zealanders, turning out to honour the man they regard as a national treasure. After lying in state overnight so ordinary people could pay their respects, Sir Edmund Hillary's casket began its final journey. Thousands of admirers lined the streets and gathered to watch the state funeral on big screens, in reverence of a man who climbed to the greatest heights but is also remembered for keeping his feet on the ground. Norbu Tenzing Norgay, the son of Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, who made that final famous crawl to the summit with Hillary in 1953, spoke on his deceased father's behalf. His loss for us is bigger and heavier than Mount Everest.

Without him our lives would never have been like what we are today. Sir Edmund's widow, Lady June, was supported by the nation and his children. I remember growing up and there was growing apprehension, excitement, but even fear about where was Dad going to take us in the upcoming school holidays?

His coffin was draped with the nation's flag and his iconic ice axe. Then his Sherpa friends laid traditional prayer scarves

across the casket, a symbolic salute to the man whose extraordinary endurance helped change their lives and the world's perception of human possibility. He went to a height and a place no man had gone before. Some New Zealanders are angry the British royal family snubbed the funeral, even though the Queen bestowed her highest honour on the mountaineer all those years ago, making him 1 of only 24 Knights of the Garter. The Queen, though, has offered a memorial service at her private chapel at Windsor Castle, which is a highly unusual gesture. In the end, the 88-year-old asked for his ashes to be scattered over Auckland harbour. his life will come full circle. That way, he said, In Auckland, Martine Griffiths, Ten News.

Another frustrating day for the Japanese whalers, as anti-whaling protesters for the Japanese whalers, as anti-whaling protesters continue to interfere with their Antarctic hunt. This time it was Greenpeace causing the grief, activists steering an inflatable boat Despite a water attack, Greenpeace was undeterred, bobbing about between the two ships to try to delay the re-fuel. Protest groups Greenpeace and Sea Shepherd have stopped the Japanese from killing any whales

for the past 11 days. After the break - new research linking miscarriage to coffee. The first choice they should probably consider is to stop drinking caffeine entirely if they can. But why are some doctors saying the study is flawed?

There's a whole range of reasons why a pregnancy miscarriages -

This program is captioned live. Prince Charles has turned green at a conference in Abu Dhabi. The environmental enthusiast chose to appear as a hologram at a green energy forum, saving the 15 tonnes of carbon dioxide

it would have generated flying to the event. To vanish into thin air and leave not a carbon footprint behind. His decision to appear as a hologram comes after he was criticised for a trip to America to collect an environmental award. There's confusion over new research about pregnant women and caffeine.

It's claimed two cups of coffee a day can double the risk of miscarriage but not all doctors are convinced.

What looks like an innocent morning routine could actually harm an unborn baby. One in six women who fall pregnant miscarry to caffeine. and more research is linking that That's why mum-to-be Erin Mitchell made the switch. I switched straight to decaf. It just wasn't worth taking the risk. An American study of 1,000 pregnant women over two years found those who drank two or more coffees a day doubled their risk of a miscarriage, and that applies to anything with more than 200mg of caffeine - tea, soft drinks, even chocolate. The first choice they should probably consider is to stop drinking caffeine entirely if they can. But leading obstetrician Dr Andrew Pesce isn't convinced.

There's a whole range of reasons why pregnancies miscarry. Usually it's because the baby isn't developing normally or isn't healthy in the first place. Dr Pesce says the data is flawed, sickness tend to give up coffee, as women who suffer from morning the latest findings. while other research contradicts expectant mothers Obstetricians are urging not to panic. who have been drinking coffee, As with any dietary advice given to pregnant women,

Scott Mackinnon for Sports Tonight.

They thus have a look at how the

first day of the quarter-final

action unfold. Such has been her dominance of the Australian Open over the past seven years, Rod Laver Arena has become a second home to Serena Williams. Today, it would have felt like the foreign land it is, as Jelena Jankovic ousted the 3-time champion in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, the number three seed rating the win the finest of her career. Defeating a defending champion - and a champion like Serena -

is something that doesn't happen every day. I've beaten the Williams sisters a couple of times, but here is very special. Williams blaming a brain fade for her out-of-sorts Open performance. I think that I went crazy, maybe, and I made a lot of mistakes. I didn't really play the game I wanted to play. In the men's, Rafael Nadal continues to take advantage of his favourable draw

moving through to the semifinals.

The second seed survived an early scare against Finn Jarkko Nieminen, forced to save two set points in the first, before clinching it 7-5. From there it was smooth sailing for the Spaniard, dominating the remaining two sets to cruise into the final four at a hard-court Grand Slam. for the first time It's a good moment for me, being the first semifinals on hard-court Grand Slam,

so it's very important for me, and I'm happy 'cause I'm here without losing a set - always an important point. Nadal's victory continues him on a collision course for a final match-up with world number one, Roger Federer.

Roger Oldridge for Sports Tonight. first day of the quarter-final action unfold.

There was disappointment for

Williams. With the serene out -

with Serena Williams out now all eyes are with Serena Williams out now all eyes are with Serena Williams out now all eyes are run a Venus eyes are run a Venus Williams..

Earlier spoke with Markell Whitey.

A secret weapon for the fully and sisters. This anonymous face in the crowd is part of the inner sanctum of the tightest team in tennis. Mark Hlawaty is the Williams's secret weapon, a hitting partner for their Open assault. It's probably the best seat in the house

Yeah, it's good to be able to hit against the best players in the world. Game days are a little bit different. Serena gets pretty serious and pretty intense

the morning of the match and she wants everything to be spot-on - which she should, she's a professional. And Venus probably a little bit more relaxed in that side. I went a month of practice, every day I did more training than I have ever done in my whole life. I didn't want to miss a ball or frame a shot. It was intense and I tell ya, the first day I went out there hitting

I was as nervous as a cat. The Melbourne boy is regarded with affection by the sisters, as for his fashion sense. I think he really cares about Serena and I and I think he loves tennis and right now he has really great hair. Serena and I were both really upset - it was funny - 'cause as soon as I got here to Melbourne I was like, "Your hair's great" - I hate it. It's an honour. I had my folks come out and watch and for them to see me out there

yeah, it's great.

And while Serena will not be defending her title, Hlawaty is hoping Venus may go all the way. The party was great. It went for about a week, I think, after they left, We had some left over champagne so ah... That shows a lot of character - to be able to do that and deal with kind of adversity.

Venus Williams will be on tomorrow.

Also we have James Blake and Roger femora. Ian, as always, a comprehensive report. Catch you tomorrow night. Now cricket, and with the Adelaide wicket expecting to favour the spinners, it's no surprise that Brad Hogg is expected to return for Australia.

What is unusual, though, is that India could play a 5-pronged bowling attack to make room for Harbhajan Singh. A fired-up Shaun Tait left nothing behind in the nets as he tried to persuade selectors he was worth another chance. ONLOOKERS: Ooooh! Yeah, he bowled fast today in the nets, that's for sure. He was swinging the ball. But out in the middle, a relaxed Andrew Symonds was surveying a pitch that will demand left-arm chinaman Brad Hogg be selected. with the preparation, The Adelaide Oval pitch the climate and the soil type we use

always takes spin. Which makes it very intriguing. I love the cat and mouse of the slow bowler against the batsman towards the end of the game. There's speculation India could take the unorthodox step of playing five bowlers in order to accommodate spinner Harbhajan Singh and stick with its form pace attack. I think it's a distinct possibility, yeah. They might go down that avenue. Irfan Pathan complemented his five wickets in Perth

with scores of 28 and 46

and could almost be viewed as an all-rounder. in a Test game It's a pleasure to have five bowlers you know that every bowler whoever is given the ball has the capability to take wickets, You know, be the spearhead. Brett Lee was surrounded by lookalikes as part of an Internet promotion. he says Despite last week's loss, Australia is still the number one team in the world and that India's attack has a long way to go

before it replicates Australia's. But, look, I think our attack's definitely right up there. We've bowled well in spells and I think we can definitely go out and do the business again. from India's one-day team had affected Indian morale. Paul Dowling, Sports Tonight. Victoria has fallen 19 runs short of first innings points A 159-run seventh wicket partnership between Andrew McDonald and Brad Hodge saving face for the Bushrangers. Meanwhile Tasmania is well in control of its clash with Queensland after compiling its biggest first-innings total of the season. The Bulls are now battling to avoid the follow-on. A blast from the little Brazilian today - Sydney FC midfielder Juninho slamming the A-League's play-off system. He's not happy that Sydney is playing the second leg of their minor semifinal away from home, despite finishing ahead of Queensland on the ladder. Two days after a record A-League crowd filled the Sydney Football Stadium, Sydney fans still can't get enough of their team. ALL: Go Sydney! Captain Tony Popovic and Brazilian imports Juninho and Patrick doing it for the kids ahead of the first of their minor semifinals against the Roar, a match Juninho believes should be played in Queensland. It's a bit strange, because we finished in third. We should have the advantage, so that's the way it should be. Earlier, Sydney's marquee signing joined team-mates for their first training session since Saturday's frustrating 2-2 draw with Melbourne.

The coach has an all-important task for his players. We want to go to Queensland, hopefully with a goal or two in the bag, and none against, and then maybe we can afford to cop one up there. Kosmina's opposite, Frank Farina, weighing in to the mind games, responding to claims the Sydney coach said Queensland choked in their tilt for the premiership. I think Sydney must have been looking in the mirror when they said that, because they were playing at home and they stuffed it, so...

The match review panel today ruled Danny Tiatto out of both of Queensland's minor semifinals after finding him guilty of violent conduct during their match against Adelaide. Meantime, Mark Milligan was among four Sydney players called into Pim Verbeek's Socceroos camp, though Australia's crucial World Cup qualifier against Qatar is far from his mind. Of late, I've just been concentrating on myself a little, trying to get fit and get back into the starting XI at Sydney

a little more so than impressing Pim. Andrew Brown for Sports Tonight. We have an Australian leader after stage one of the Tour Down Under. Mark Renshaw is celebrating the first "Pro Tour win" of his career taking out the 129 kilometre ride through the Barossa Valley.

(All sing badly) # What you do to me # Some team bonding on the start line, others took a more serious approach. Robbie McEwen keen to get the first ProTour race of the season under way. Not 100% sure of how I'm going to feel out there, but I'll give it my best anyway. COMMENTATOR: Away they go! The greatest bike race in the Southern Hemisphere. After rolling out of Mawson Lakes, the action didn't take long to pick up. Just 11km in, Belgium's Phillipe Gilbert snared King of the Mountain points.

The undulating stage made conditions perfect for attacks. Tasmania's Richie Porte among three riders who opened up a 7-minute lead. The first sprint going to Frenchman Mickael Buffaz. The peloton gave chase through the Barossa Valley, catching the lead group with three kilometres to go. It paved the way for a bunch sprint to the finish.

was a worthy winner. Credit Agricole's Mark Renshaw Graeme Brown crossed the line in third. To win here today is a phenomenal feeling. I've been chasing this ProTour victory for four years, so to do it here in Australia is sensational. for stage two. Geelong's bad boy, Steve Johnson, has escaped suspension

and instead he's been told to put in 50 hours of road trauma education. The Cats' problem star said he had no excuse for driving at 128km/h in a 50km/h zone. The club denied it had gone soft. We are true to what we believe in here.

We very seldom fine people. If you look at our sanctioning over the past five years I think the largest fine we have provided here has been $1,000. It was a silly thing to do. I can't put a finger on it. Pretty much what Cookie said - it was a bit of a brain fade. Johnson, who lost his licence for 12 months and still faces court fines, will work with road trauma victims and their families over the next two years. The Brisbane Broncos are yet to grant Wayne Bennett permission to coach New Zealand.

Club boss, Bruno Cullen, is still awaiting a formal request from the Kiwis. Wayne Bennett was all smiles today at Broncos headquarters. But things may sour if the club blocks a possible coaching appointment with the Kiwis. A formal offer now seems inevitable. We don't know what it will be - is it water boy, is it assistant coach, is it head coach, whatever, is it director of coaching,

so... that headline will come at another time. While the Broncos reserve their decision on Bennett, teenage prodigy Dave Taylor is reserving his decision on a long-term future with the club, the 115kg giant ignoring calls opting for a 1-year extension until the end of 2009. I prefer the one year because I haven't really proved myself yet

and things can change around the corner. It's a gamble for him. If he goes off the boil, might not be out there. It was a day for re-signing Generation Next, Parramatta star Krisnan Inu ignoring big-money offers from rival clubs

to stick with the Eels until 2010.

The bond we have together at the club is pretty special. and I don't think I could've let that go for a few more dollars.

And in Melbourne Cameron Smith has been named the Storm's long-term captain,

but he's likely to miss the premiers World Club Challenge match against Leeds, instead staying home for the birth of his first child. At the end of the day, it'd be nice to be over there and play with the boys but I'm going to be putting my child first. The Storm will fly out to England on February 18. Jonathan Williams for Sports Tonight.
