It looks like things were pretty nasty and it's still a few hours until daylight yet. I got a video from friends in Cairns at 12:50 PST last night showing the palm trees bending over as the first major part of the winds hit. Be safe.

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 http://yfrog.com/h36x2ygj Cheers EDIT Here's some photo's http://www.theage.com.au/photogallery/environment/weather/yasi-hits-north-queensland/20110202-1acrd.html (edited by Big G on 2.2.11 2119)
