    From the Bureau's latest advice.....

    SEVERE TC YASI IS A LARGE AND VERY POWERFUL TROPICAL CYCLONE AND POSES AN
    EXTREMELY SERIOUS THREAT TO LIFE AND PROPERTY WITHIN THE WARNING AREA,
    ESPECIALLY BETWEEN PORT DOUGLAS AND TOWNSVILLE.

    THIS IMPACT IS LIKELY TO BE MORE LIFE THREATENING THAN ANY EXPERIENCED DURING
    RECENT GENERATIONS.

    I am... kinda **** scared at the moment. I sure as hell hope my friends place is up to this, particularly if this thing comes further south.

    This will be my first cyclone... and I'm sure I will never forget it

    My sister and her family are in Townsville.
    She told me yesterday 'if we get blown away, we will wave as we go past' :lol:
    That actually did not make me feel better :?
    Her husband reckons 'Gas bottles filled - check, Yard cleaned up - check, Cold coke and two 40 pounders - check. Just another beautiful day in the tropics!'

    I've already accepted my losses... now it's time to pray for all my colleagues, friends, students etc who remained in Cairns... I also accept I might not be able to make it back to Cairns for some time.

    Glad to hear you left slim, my sister in law & four teenage nephews are in Cairns & we havn't been able to get in touch with her today so i'm hoping they left too. Good luck everyone & if you own a helmet & earplugs of any sort have them ready, especially for kids:)

    They are now predicting a tidal surge 6.5 - 7 metres around Cardwell. That's huge, more than the Indonesian tsunami.
