Just putting up a thread so that Australian W's remember to check in. It looks like things were pretty nasty and it's still a few hours until daylight yet.

If anyone is interested the ABC station doesn't appear to region lock its streaming:

Big Arse storm for sure.
Reports so far say no fatalities which is great. More info will come out as rescue teams get to the more remote areas.

The township of Tully has been hit pretty hard.

They're expecting secondary storm flooding today.

The country's had a rough few weeks what with floods, fires and now a cat 5 cyclone.

They've still got a sense of humour up there though​h36x2ygj

Not agreeing with him on much of anything, I still found him thought provoking, fascinating, and well-grounded in his beliefs. He was the type of conservative that liberals like myself respected and listened to without sarcasm.
