I am a Dad and have a lovely wife and two loving children , one girl and one boy , we live in Innisfail Queensland.
We have been through two Cyclones Larry And Yassi,
Larry was the worst because of the destruction caused terror was within us, as my wife and two children took cover in the bathroom with a mattress over there heads and myself wedged in between our front door as the latches where torn of out of the door frames , I wedged my self and the front door , being battered several or more time as the winds of the force wanted to come I went and grabbed the BBQ and saw that the washing machine was hover on a 45 degree angle and then I heard the howling of the Cyclone coming back and I did the same thing as before and same as my wife and two children it blew so hard howling an picking anything up and throwing it down like projectiles causing serve damages to peoples house and land , to this day people hear of Cyclone and still to this day sends a shiver down the back of the town folk.
Yassi missed us but we still got a flogging of the tail end scary but we survived yet another Cyclone in 2006, why do we live here , because it’s our home and our joy as a family , Go Bless who helped with both Cyclones and all natural disaster , forming as a nation of one and lending a helping hand , THANK – YOU ALL
