Just an update

Cyclone Yasi is now a category 5 and has changed direction again. According to the map the eye may now be a bit closer to us. Though poor Innisfail (Cyclone Larry) looks to be right in it's path.

Because of storm surge, the first two streets close to the beach here have been evacuated, but they say we don't have to go. I could still go into my friend's place, but in reality she's only 17kms away and will get the same impact we will - so I'm undecided. I probably have another 3 hours or so to make up my mind.

The library closed yesterday and the PTBs are turning off the water at 7am (twenty minutes from now) and we've filled up all our water containers. Everything in the yard (branches, bikes, tables etc has been moved inside. I guess we just have to wait it out.
