JAMES CAMERON'S Avatar is now the highest-earning film in the world, published figures have confirmed.

Twentieth Century Fox's sci-fi flick today surpassed Cameron's previous world record-holder Titanic to claim the all-time global box office crown.

Film data site Box Office Mojo shows that Avatar has grossed a staggering $1.859 billion in just under six weeks, beating Titanic's $1.843billion. The clamour for the 3D IMAX experience - with more expensive tickets - has undoubtedly contributed to the film's takings.

In third place in the all-time worldwide chart is The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King with $1.119billion, followed by Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest with $1.066billion and then The Dark Knight with $1billion.

At present, Titanic still holds the USA box office record with a tally of $600million compared with Avatar's $555million.

BARROW ISLAND, Australia -- Scientists at the World Meteorological Organization confirmed that the 253.5 mph (408 km/h) wind gust achieved during Tropical Cyclone Olivia on April 10, 1996 sets the new world record for the Highest surface wind speed.

The previous world record for the Highest surface wind speed was of 372 km/h, registered in April 1934 across the summit of Mount Washington, USA.

Hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons are different terms for the same weather phenomenon which is accompanied by torrential rain and maximum sustained wind speeds exceeding119 kilometers per hour. A hurricane with maximum sustained wind speeds exceeding 249 km/h is referred to as Category 5.

A wind gust of 318 mph was measured by Doppler radar during a tornado in Moore, Oklahoma, in 1999. However, Doppler records are not considered official.
