Thanks for your well wishes as Cyclone Anthony approached the coast of Queensland.
The good news is that it passed quickly to the south of us with minimal impact on the area.
The bad news is that Cyclone Yasi is not far behind it. (The pink to red lines represent the destructive winds with the prediction being up to 200km per hour in the centre.)
This system has already been described as one of the biggest threats to ever menace our state.
It’s difficult to see how we’ll avoid this one. A disaster zone has been declared before it has even arrived.
To say we’re all feeling rather anxious is more than just an understatement.
