Cyclone Yasi

Ok people looks like poor old Queensland is going to be belted again.* My heart goes out to anyone with a boat in a vulnerable position.* So hard to know what to do.* I am keeping fingers crossed neither it nor any others drift down this way this summer* This one is big - huge - like Katrina which struck Florida 5 yrs ago and twice the size and as strong or stronger than Larry which hit Innesvale in 2006.* Here's hoping...

RE: Cyclone Yasi

I have just looked at the BOM site, Yasi is now a category 4 & predicted to strengthen overnight, before making landfall late tomorrow.This could get very ugly for the poor devils caught in its path.

Thanks Carey and others.* This is getting so big, I have opened a thread with a link on the main board.* The Premier of the State giving her final briefing and is addressing this as the most destructive weather event on record in this state.....and we thought we had just had that with the flooding.* Whole towns and cities are being evacuated.
Anybody out there still doubt global warming....?

RE: Cyclone Yasi

Yes, a massive operation is still underway. What with the floods, and the cyclone hitting the same state within a week or so of each other = 75% of the state was a declared disaster zone. The real challenge is prioritising it right.
The link gives some idea .......
