Bad, but nowhere near as bad as it could have been.

Cyclone Yasi duly hit the Northern Queensland coast in Australia as forecast yesterday. It appears that a lot of damage has been done, but no one has yet been reported killed. I think that is good.

Fortunately, the worst of the cyclone missed the bigger cities, such as Cairns, but there are still possibilities of floods there. Since I have some Australian friends, and also know people who have emigrated there, I am pleased for them, although, as far as I know, they do not live near and were not near the storms when they hit. In any case, I hope the clear up goes well and as quickly as possible, especially as I will be going to Oz later this year.
