My home state is probably going to be hit by the biggest cyclone/hurricane/typhoon to ever hit Northern Australia. This is what the Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology is forecasting:
Hurricane Katrina was a Category 5 and Cyclone Yasi is predicted to be a 4/5 at this point. I live in Townsville which is in the middle of the expected crossing area. We are making preparations and hoping for the best.
