Cyclone Yasi – The Sheer Size of It

13 Feb

I stumbled across this website today and just had to share.  It’ll give my international readers a clearer understanding of the monstrous Cyclone Yasi that North Queensland endured less than a fortnight ago.

    I saw this in the days just before and after – did you read some of the comments? The bottom interactive map, i think shows the most ‘accurate’ version in my opinion.

    It’s surreal, as all my family (in Cairns)were relatively unaffected by TC Yasi, so things have gone back to ‘normal’ for them, yet there are families and businesses struggling and will struggle for a long time. Just the little things have made it hard for people.Nappies, baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, formula, basic over the counter medicines etc. everyday items, that are now considered almost luxuries due to there unavailability. So sad. I recieved an email talking about the moon and it’s phases in relation to floods/cyclones in previous years -according to this email, mid to late march i think are 6-7 cyclones predicted during this ‘super/extreme moon phase!?! i certainly hope it was one of those silly ‘scare tactic’ emails 😦

    Oh Bernadette, I so hope you are right about it being one of those “scare tactic” emails. Queensland just doesn’t need that at all.
