    If your living in North QLD then it might be a good idea to hang on to something sturdy.

    Wishing you all the best, I am glad I'm not living there anymore.

    For the UK, that storm would cover most of Britain!!
    I think the Yanks would refer to it as a Super Typhoon. In Australia we would call it a F'ing big Cyclone.

    More importantly. See that big black thing forming off Vanuatu? That would probably cover 3/4 of Queensland if that hit Australia.

    That big black thing is Yasi and it appears to be heading directly for Queensland. The smaller one now heading inland is the remanents of Anthony a baby cyclone that didn't cause too much damage.

    Man, Brisbane is getting ravaged at the moment. Living in Caaberra, it really puts my complaints into perspective.
