The weather in Australia is about to change. There is a severe tropical cyclone off the Queensland coast that is expected to follow the coast for a long way down it. It should mean in about 3 days we will start to get rain from it. We haven't had such a disturbance come this far south for years and years. Hopefully it won't cause too much destruction in Queensland. The media is saying that it may well be as destructive as cyclone Larry that damaged Innisfail about 3 years ago. Before that event the media used to rate them according to the destruction of Darwin in 1974 from cyclone Tracey, which killed 74 people. Communities are much better organized now.Hopefully it will just bring much needed rain to the south of Queensland and the north of NSW.Will keep you posted. Check out the site "bom.gov.au" on this site you can check out our weather and see how the cyclone is going.
