  8. Our friends at Mission Beach are ok. Their house is 2 streets back from the beach. They have not been able to get back to see if it still exists. Mission Beach was the epicentre of the cyclone. They sheltered under their parents place in Tully but had to leave it in the quiet of the eye of the storm when the top floor was ripped off and torn to bits. They ran to a neighbours place that was still standing to shelter from the rest of the cyclone. They are in shock and just grateful to be alive. A-M xx

  9. AM I am so sorry to hear about your friends. I cannot imagine how scared they must have been but how brave they were to run to a neighbor in the eye of the storm. It is such a beautiful part of the world and the people are so warm and kind, welcoming and hard working. It is just so awful, but thank goodness it seems there were few hurt, xx Katherine

  10. Thanks for the link, I've found it hard to find simple footage (I'm in Melbourne)! My Uncle lives at Bramston Beach, approx 1 hour south of Cairns, he refused to evacuate, his backyard is "The Beach" before I went to bed last night all I knew was he was sheltered in his flimsy garage, in his car with his wife, 2 cats and a dog..
    I eventually found out this morning, they're all fine, not even damage to their home

  13. Oh. My. I just shudder at the destruction and my heart goes out to those who have had to endure such hardship. Ah, it just has not been a good year so far has it?

    Thoughts and prayers being sent constantly,
