Here we Go - Hold Tight!
All the evacuation centres in Cairns are filled to capacity. People from the beaches to the north of the city have been forced to evacuate - they are expecting a high tide and storm surge at 9 p.m. If the predictions are right - a lot of these homes will be submerged. It is just so unbelievable!
We are perched high on a hill here in the Valley - so we won't be affected by storm surges. We are however completely surrounded by huge trees and palms. I just hope they manage to keep standing!
Thinking of all our friends along the FNQ coast tonight - especially thinking of everyone in my home town of Innisfail. Please let them be spared - they have had more than their fair share of natural disasters.
Stay safe and HOLD TIGHT!
