Holding On

We are now facing the biggest cyclone seen in our lifetimes.

The winds in the centre will be over 300 kilometres per hour. It appears that those winds will be to the north of us, but we are expecting up to 200 kilometre per hour winds over our house within the next twelve to twenty four hours. (The black dot below represents where we’ll be as this storm, which is 500 kilometres wide passes over.)

We have prepared as much as we can. We have boarded and taped windows, prepared a safe room and bought food supplies. There have been mandatory evacuations made in low-lying ares and the police have warned to stay off the roads after midday today.

I know of so many people who have just left North Queensland. They’ve flown, trained or driven south.

We’re staying, but we’ll be holding on tight.
