False Alarm: "George Claims Third Victim" Is Not About Iran

The story headlined "George claims third victim..." is from Australia and it's about a cyclone.
Cyclone George today claimed a third victim when a 42-year-old man died of head injuries in Perth's Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital.

Craig Allan Raabe, 42, of Gympie, in Queensland, was hurt when George's 275km/h winds tore through a railway construction camp south of Port Hedland in the Pilbara region in the state's north-west.

He was one of 22 injured people airlifted early on Friday from the Fortescue Metals Group (FMG) site after the category four storm smashed Rail Camp 1 on Thursday night, sending temporary accommodation buildings flying.

George was the most violent storm to strike the region in 30 years.
Not good news a-tall. But the headline looked a lot worse for a moment.

Keep breathing, keep breathing, keep breathing...
