A picture comparing tc tracy and tc yasi

On the left, Tropical Cyclone Tracy which devastated Darwin on christmas eve, 1974. On the right, Extreme Cyclone Yasi, from the BoM IR image recorded at 00.30 (half past midnight) on Wednesday 02-02-2011.

Extreme Cyclone Yasi is to Autumn rain what News Ltd. is to journalism, in case you wanted another comparison.

If you’re in Cairns and reading this, please log off and run for your f*cking life. Scratch that. It’s apparently now too late to evacuate. Qld has an emergency page that may come in handy for making preparations. Those of us in other parts of Australia are thinking of you now Qld. Hang in there and be safe.
