PERTH (Reuters) - A powerful cyclone that brought half the world's seaborne-traded iron ore to a halt spared Australia's Port Hedland shipping hub on Wednesday, making landfall about 120 km (75 miles) to the east.

Cyclone Rusty, with destructive winds up to 200 kph (125 mph), is expected to flood inland iron ore mine operations and rail links with heavy rain expected overnight and on Thursday.

"Port Hedland will escape Rusty's worst winds," the Bureau of Meteorology said.
