so far the news seems good – no loss of life so now its about what damage has been caused

the banana industry might be wiped out again – in 2006 when this happened bananas went to $30 a kg ($15 per lb)   🙁

We still havent heard from my aunt, uncle, and cousins in Cairns but I assume their power is still out.

Hi, I live in North Qld. Cyclone yasi gave us a good belting. We lost major trees, surrounding fence and part of roof. There is still currently a power line down out the front of our house. We are on our 5th day without power and probably won’t be getting it anytime soon. Traffic lights are still out and causing a bit of chaos. We had major damage to our water treatment plant so drinking water was getting scarce but they have now got it running enough to supply drinking water and for showers but nothing else. Thankfully Family, friends and pets are safe. Great destruction everywhere but thankfully it has not claimed as many lives as expected due to the increased housing standards and the early warnings. Hope everyone else is okay.

We heard from my family about 2 days after the Cyclone hit Cairns. They lost power for 48 hours and didn’t get hit very hard. The storm had moved south a bit just before hitting. Some trees were knocked down, a few garage doors pushed in, but thats about as bad as they got. The places around them got hit a lot harded like @Lilmisssunshine said.

Stay safe – the only one I was in was Ike a few years ago, and it was scary!  I have never heard wind like that before.  We were out of power and water for 2 weeks.  I’ll keep you in our thoughts!
