My apologies to all my readers, and especially those of you who are new here but I don’t have any new and exciting content tonight.
As the title says, we are watching and waiting as Severe Tropical Cyclone Marcia inches towards the central Queensland coast. Even though we are about 650km south of where it is expected to cross the coast around 7am tomorrow, we are already feeling the effects of this system. The wind has gradually increased since midday and we have recorded over 90mm of rain in the past 15 hours.
The cyclone has rapidly increased in strength today to be rated as a Category 4 system and is expected to be a Category 5 with winds of up to almost 300km/hour by the time it reaches land. This presents a very real risk to life and property.
This is serious and extremely dangerous. Please do everything you can to stay safe and ensure the safety of others.
Regular posts will return soon.
