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. If anyone is interested the ABC station doesn't appear to region lock its streaming: http://www.abc.net.au/news/abcnews24/ Here's Yasi shown in comparison to various landmasses you might be more familiar with their size: http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news/floodrelief/how-cyclone-yasi-compares-around-the-world/story-fn7ik2te-1225998762870 Promote this thread!

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)
Move to Canada already, Mr. Cynic. But seriously, given the hoops they make you jump through (the first of which is, most likely you should be a reader of US News & World Report to even get that far) The W message board ZimBoard ©2001-2014 Brothers Zim This old hunk of junk rendered your page in 0.09 seconds.
