Australia and my beloved state of Queensland has barely recovered from the recent devastating floods.
Look now what we have on our door step...
Oh my God. Cyclone Yasi is bigger than Queensland!
It is said to rival Hurricane Katrina.
Mass evacuations<> have already begun.
I have family in the area where the Cyclone is expected to hit...I hope they get out without delay.
I feel so scared for Australians in the direct line of the Cyclone. We experienced Cyclone Hamish two years ago and Larry before that, the wind and rain was incredible...and scary.
Even though Cyclone Hamish never made landfall, I can remember tying everything down, taping up windows and feeling quite stressed when it was coming..we were living in our shed and I worried that it would not hold up. We started to pack the car to travel inland but we were spared.
Here is that post.
I know what it is like to know that it is coming..to want to protect your family and your home and your possessions.
It looks like this one will make land fall.
It's a sickly feeling.
I'm not sure how much more we can take.
Stay safe Queenslanders..
