Cyclone Yasi – Waiting game

Ten am. Twelve hours to impact. When the eye is expected to reach the coast. Upgraded to high Category 5. Nothing this big has ever hit the country. Not since records began. Unknown territory.

Strangely calm in Cairns. Unnervingly so. Waiting game. Winds building. Likely to increase rapidly over the next few hours as the system closes land.

Reports just in advise Yasi has crossed Willis Island off the Queensland coast. Weather station lost. Hoping the beleaguered meteorological staff safely in their bunker.
