Good luck Queensland... shits gunna get serious... (looks mental though...)
Tropical Cyclone Yasi could become a category five monster packing 300kmh (180mph) winds by the time it crosses the Queensland coast, the weather bureau has warned.

Yasi intensified to a category five cyclone overnight and its impact is ''likely to be more life-threatening than any experienced during recent generations'', the Bureau of Meteorology says.

By comparison cyclone Larry, which caused $1.5 billion worth of damage to Innisfail and surrounds, was a mid-level category four system.

The little one in the middle of Aus is Cyclone Anthony, which was a category 1-2



Anyone ever experienced a cyclone, typhoon or a hurricane?? im sure its pretty fuckin crazy...

I was on the outskirts of hurricane Katrina in 2005. I was staying at my Uncles pad for a 2 week holiday near Orlando and we put up a couple that my Uncle knew from Miami for a few days. Even where we were there was a fair bit of damage done, Miami got hit really badly though, can't imagine what it must've been like for anyone who was still there.

Makes you realise that we're still at the mercy of Mother Nature! Not much we can do but hide!

I'm watching some storm chasers during the early stages. Looks like it's going to be fucked up by the time it's over.

Time for evac is long gone. Still a few hours til it hits. Power is going out a fair distance away, fingers crossed for them that are there. Stay inside and hunker down. Must be fuckin scary as hell.

the last thing i heard from my cousin was that she was bunkering down on the top floor of an empty apartment block. i really dont think that sounds like the safest place to be. especially if she's on her own.
