The news coming in from North Queensland is, well, probably as best as can be expected. The full extent of damage is still unknown and some areas have been completely cut off and emergency crews can't get in yet. But SO FAR...no injuries or deaths have been reported, though it's still too early to be sure everyone is safe. Most places are still in lockdown as it isn't safe to come out yet, and a second, higher storm surge was expected. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that everyone over 'tother side' is OK. Thank you to my readers for your thoughts. I'm a long way from all this devastation (though WA had its own Cyclone scare a week ago, thankfully no more than a few roofs blown off in the end but it could have been much worse), but it's heartbreaking to see our fellow Aussies have to go through this all over again.
