Yasi part 2

Yasi looks to have made landfall over Mission beach and Tully at midnight at a category 5. Some of the least inhabited areas along the coast.

The news reports so far are that there aren’t any fatalities, and the storm serge wasn’t as bad as was expected due to it coming in on an outgoing tide.

The banana plantations are decimated in Innisfail.

But the media have yet to get into Tully, so it will remain to be seen how bad a category 5 can be in an area that has been built to withstand as such.

Such is the life in North Queensland.
