Queensland gets a kick while it's Down
Cyclone Yasi is supposed to make landfall on Thursday around Cairns area (2 days of hard driving North). By the time it hits land it may be a Category 5 storm with winds up to 280km/hr. The entire hospital population has been evacuated to Brisbane by the army. Everyone who could get out, has. The story is here:
This is not even a month since the Southeast floods. Perth is on fire, NSW is flooded, Victoria was flooded and is now on fire as well. If it wasn't for Oprah's recent visit, there may be no tourism industry left!
