Cyclone Yasi - too late to evacuate...

Cyclone Tracy, Christmas eve 1974 wiped Darwin off the map... that was Category 4 with an eye 15 kms wide. This one has an eye apparently more than twice the size...

the sad thing about Tracy was, no one knew for 3 days, an Australian capital city was gone.... they're all getting plenty of water and the South West corner of the continent where I live is in drought....   .....

and they call us "the Lucky country"..... winds expected over 300 kms (186+ miles per hour)

..."I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains.
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel-sea,
Her beauty and her terror
The wide brown land for me!"...
