Our fellow Queenslanders in the Far North of the state are about to experience the worst cyclone in Australia's history. It is expected the eye of the cyclone will pass over them at 11.00pm.
Who would have believed after all the flooding and the devastating inland tsunami that now our people are facing this next huge disaster. The cyclone is named 'Yasi' and it is a Category 5 and a very huge system stretching hundreds of kilometres. The eye of the cyclone alone is approx 70 kilometres.
Pray no lives will be lost. There is no doubt that it will cause huge destruction of property and habitat.
You can get some statistics on this web site here. Very, Very scary.
If you are interested you can read all about 'Yasi' here
We are in the South East of the state, so will not experience it's force, but there may be ongoing rain with it - and that is something we don't need big heaps of right now!!
