Cyclone Larry

This bad boy is currently hitting the populated area of the North East coast, Australia. It is a category 5 storm (there is no bigger ranking):

Incase you don't know what a cyclone is, look at the image and identify the cyclone pattern. Aka Hurricane in the Americas and Typhoon in Asia.

Pretty safe from my perch, but the US marines made a run for it a couple of days ago, pulling out of manouvres in the area.

"big fella"......... you spent some time with Australians?

290kph winds! http://www.abc.net.au/news/australia...3/s1595628.htm

do you listen to jjj by any chance? if so, did you hear (actually it mightn't have been on in wa yet) when they were talking to the couple who were literally in the eye of the cyclone - and then a bit later when they were talking to him again when the winds were back on? He was talking about whole trees blowing past etc etc ... nasty stuff

It's supposed to be like twice as big as Tracy or something, and obviously 1 cat more powerful!!! And Darwin looked like Hiroshima after Tracy.

The winds are greater than Katrina and Rita. Hopefully most of the houses are built to cyclone rating.

I'd like a mass snow storm.....not too sure about the Cyclone though

As for the Commonwealth Games.....I try to avoid anything remotely sport related. And it's not the winning that counts....it's the taking part lol

Yeah, but I bet when Mr Victoria Beckham scores a goal in the soccer world cup, you're more vocal than an pissed Arsenal fan in Germany .

We had Phil the Greek and his missus here to open the games. Even Eddy showed up to help them get around.
