Awesome, exhilarating. One incredible white-knuckle ride to say the least. This is a great example of the importance of ground-truthing for so many aspects of scientific research and overall public awareness. Well done.

It was a bit disconcerting however to see extreme ground truthing by the chaps at 10:15: outside and exposed in that maelstrom. Is that a bit a like taking your helmet off in space to experience a vacuum?

Spent a day out on that pontoon. That's quite sad seeing it like that.

Thanks for posting the link here Trav.
I was listening to an ABC report/interview on the local ABC 106.7 here with some American/Canadian storm chaser, Josh I think was his name as I recall. He was basically referencing how people such as yourself and Nitso here in Aus, along with the other unpaid assorted unmentioned crew of OZC provide your own highly calibrated instruments, along with all other resources when chasing here in Australia in impact areas that are poorly lacking in instrumental and empirical recording of such phenomenon.
He also mentioned that apart from being a mere chaser he was there as a resource during and after the impact, despite just being seen as a storm chaser.

Despite all the the thrills and chills that you guys add to us ...voyeurs for want of a better name, it is actually pretty special that you guys are able to provide valued empirical evidence in real time on the ground scenarios for the use of BOM and other scientific services as you do what you do.

Not many people are aware that the places you guy's put yourselves into in such phenomenon are lacking any sort of measurements at all, nor are they aware that you guys are using the most up to date instrumentation available, according to affordability for you.

Thanks for it all guys and girls. Your Wives and Girlfriends must hate you all at times...

In case anyone's wondering why Hamilton Island is not currently reporting temperature or dewpoint, I've just seen a picture of what's left of the screen (spoiler: not very much).

Yeah, I do. It's the Sarina-Marlborough road going over the Sarina Range.

The Eton Range on the Peak Downs Highway has also been affected by a landslide, but is in far worse state than the Sarina Range, and Eungella Range has also had a landslide.



no the Sarina Range is closed indefinately at this stage, I live up there and have since had to shut up the house and move into town, the trip around would add almost 3hrs to my daily drive to work otherwise frown

I bet they could fix it in a few days with some heavy machinery to cut a new road. Then restrict the road to local access only.

Can someone please link me to Debbie's track. Is there one that goes all the way to NZ?
All I can find is Cyclone Debbie from 2003, of all things. Isn't 13 years a bit too soon to be using the name again? Very confusing.

Coral view, thanks, but those pics were posted by SinVokA.

So far only this published by BoM

STC Debbie report

I would expect a more detailed report in the coming months but doubt it will include the NZ track

Spoke to a lady at work here in Broome who was working on Hayman Island through Debbie. Pretty horrific stories of what it was like. Amazing to hear and scary by the sounds of it. Especially the Back end after the eye had crossed.
