I saw the forecast for cyclone Debbie.
Hubby says it is a good job we are not there at the moment. We did some fantastic dives on the SS Yongala, which went down on 23rd March 1911, with 122 lives lost, in a cyclone. It was found 12 miles out from Alva Beach, near Cape bowling green. It was found in 1958. We went out of Townsville on the liveaboard MV Spoilsport. It is now an amazing reef full of marine life, but quite challenging as a dive because of the tearing currents that go across it.
I don't suppose they blamed global warming for the cyclone in 1911.
Stay safe Pat. Lets hope it blows out before it gets inland.
