its not helpful IMO to start demanding apologies. This thread was a minefield of misinformation and speculation and many long term members pointedly avoided this thread. The main message should always have been to watch the BOM info and not create panic through ridiculous guessing games. What point is there now in point scoring. Fortunately everyone seems to be safe - all that matters.


it's not about point scoring. i don't know the people that were flamed. to be honest i stopped reading these forums about that time and stuck to the sites containing accurate information. doesn't change my view.

My aunt and uncle stayed at their place just up the road from Yungaburra, hope they're OK... there's some massive trees around there so finger's crossed nothing drastic happened there.

Anyone profiteering out of a disaster zone should be be treated with distane, if not treated like a looter.
If we were to profiteer in a disaster zone I'm sure we would be kicked out swiftly.
Commercial channels are there to get ratings "make a profit"
As far as I am concerned their actions in disaster zones not just this one shows there needs a few tougher regs and concequences for such actions. not just hiding behind freedom of the press.
People and local authorities need help not companies wanting to get a scoop story at any cost..
Sorry for the rant but feel its an important subject.

Just been watching the news coverage on all channels and it's a miracle that no one has been injured during the event. We can be thankful to everyone for taking the right action, whether it was evacuate, take refuge in their own homes, use advice from this forum or officials, or just pure luck. A post mortem on what happened to this forum really pales in significance to what lies ahead for most of us up here in the north. Especially when you consider there is possibly more cyclones on the way before the end of the season

Also I found it very hypocritical of the Ch7 TV reporters telling every one to stay inside and in the next breath corss to a reoporter walking around outside in townsville and another trying to drive to tully!

Hey Weatherprincess, I think we're all pretty interested. The best thing you can do is to keep an eye on these forums and on the BOM. There is a tropical that one model did suggest would become a TC, but it's still too far out to rely on that. It well may become nothing. The TC Yasi tech thread is worth reading if you want to know a bit more as well.

At this time there are no other tropical cyclones in the Coral Sea or South Pacific Ocean (west of the International Date Line) [none in the Qld AOR or Fiji AOR]

Weather models at this time do not indicate any new tropical cyclones are likely in the next 7 days.

This thread is intended to be about TC Yasi

This thread is about activity in the Coral Sea

Hey guys can I please please ask people to stick with information about this event, any discussion on WZ performance can be discussed in another thread specific to the drop out. Also, can we please leave speculation on a possible future event to a different thread specific to that too. The last thing we need right now is hysteria over future events without detailed information while we are still concerned with reports with the still current TC Yasi.

Media reports at this stage are that there are no casualties - HOWEVER there are a large number of communities that are cut off , so we do not yet have detailed information. Therefore it is way too early to say that everything is OK.

Thankyou guys.

Couriermail says:CARDWELL looks like a tsunami has hit. The coastal community about 50km south of Tully is completely devastated and looks more like a junkyard.

The marina is destroyed, million-dollar boats have been ripped apart, homes have had roofs torn off, buildings are just shells, power lines are down everywhere and the town is barely recognisable.

The Courier-Mail was the first media crew able to reach the town with access limited into the destroyed community.

RSL President Ray Andrews described the cyclone hitting "like a freight train coming for you".

"This place is wiped out," he said.

"Trees and the forest are just shredded, this was a mega storm.

"There's a lot of elderly people here who are going to need help here".

At Port Hinchinbrook Estate marina with more than $40 million boats have been ripped up from the marina and now resting on land metres away.


The carnage is incomprehensible as many locals return to see the devastation today.

A toilet block on the beachside was ripped to shreads and businesses and homes have been smashed apart.

Terrible result for Mission beach, Tully, Cardwell and all the little beachside and inland communities. Such a beautiful part of Australia. I hope the regular posters I have gotten to know over the years in those areas are all OK. Especially you Mission Shak who I think was sitting it out with the family at home.

Yeah pity the forum went down last night. Even after sifting through some of the clutter in the thread its still always an interesting read as events unfold. Thats if you can actually keep up with it.

Hope everyones OK. The human toll is looking positive at this stage. Lets hope it stays that way. And also well done to the QLD governmnet, Anna Bligh, disaster management and BOM. Well handled in the lead up to the event. They should be proud. Lets hope its as efficient in the aftermath, which as Aussies unite I think it will be another showcase of how bloody good the aussie spirit is.
EDIT: Just read your post Mission Shak. Great to hear all is OK!!

Oh please - you guys are seeing conspiracies in everything. Server got overloaded and thus the forum stopped working. Do you really think that the government has nothing better to do with a cyclone approaching that hang on every word of a weather forum in case they need to take it down?

End of discussion on this one in the thread please - and that applies to the other she said this / he said that discussion too.

Townsville tide gauge shows this mornings high tide up about half a metre on yesterdays. clearly still some storm surge present as was forecast. Thank god this storm did not cross at either Cairns or Townsville on high tide. The result would have been very different than what we see now.

Something to consider, if TC Tracy had tracked 25km either South or North of where it did in 1974 no-one would remember it today. Once again North QLD has been spared major devastation due to a minor variation in the track of a truly destructive storm.

On a side note, maybe just me but wouldn't it be better if forum users left the moderating to the moderators.
