@Butrflynet,
I got an anonymous SMS with this old joke. Weird. Still have power. Twitter still dead. We might just miss the very destructive winds

@hingehead,
Hinge,

How close are you to shore and the expected sea surge?

If close, being in the lower-level granny apartment may not be the best idea.

Just said on that AAC stream that Cairns should be feeling the brunt of it at any moment now.

Also said that high tide will not coincide with the storm surge so water levels won't be quite as high.

The live video stream from cameras at Townsville and Innisfail have gone off the air.

AAC radio just said the wave buoy at Townsville has recorded an 18 meter wave.

Edit: Now they're saying that isn't accurate, that the waves are turning the buoys upside down and the measurements aren't accurate.

@hingehead,
Looks to me like Cairns has had the worst it will get from this. It's heading away from you now, and towards Dunk Island and Tully. Townsville will also get worse than Cairns being on the southern side.

It registered that, yes, but was NOT credible. They think the bouy has been turned upside down. (According to our state Premier live on TV)

AAC radio saying it is still two hours away before winds are high enough to possibly blow over some transmission towers.
