Amazing how local topography funnels it and ramps up the velocity.

Yeah, it's been a while since I've been on here. It's not too bad around my place at the moment. Only getting gusts below 30kmh. My weather station gave up the ghost last year & I haven't been able to replace it, so have to use the hand-held to get wind readings. I don't mind going outside at the moment, it's quite invigorating & I have to keep checking on my damn cat Elly, who refuses to come inside. She's sitting in my carport, just watching the wind & rain. I'm going to have to give her a new nickname, I think Stormcat might be the go, LOL! She seems to be enjoying it. Hope you're staying safe, Hailin.

Yes starting to see real impressive totals. Just wait until the eye infills and she starts to really rain. Anyone in Rocky keep your eyes on the Upper Bee and Funnel Creek alerts. This is where the big floods come from.

Seems to have settled down here too in the last hour or so. Bit hairy earlier but no dramas really. 122.5mm overnight.

Holy moly! Strathdickie is up to 433mm now. It was sitting on 147mm at 4.30 this morning. That's nearly 300mm in 3 hours!

Hamilton Island just had gusts of 120 Knots and sustained at 97 knots. Those figures are closer to proof of a Cat 4.

Would not want to be in a house at Conway beach or a boat in shute harbour, with that wind direction and incoming tide.

See the Finch Hatton and Sarich Pioneer tributory River alerts. Here she comes. Keep an eye on the tidal gauge at Mackay harbour to see if the surge is forthcoming.

bloody devastating to see whats happening to this town, house has seemed to hold up pretty well except for some minor water leaking in the roof and walls. Bloody ground is sopping and just about slop from the top down to about 500mm. Not far off seeing the eye now and then we have the return journey to contend with.
