The Morning After the Cyclone Before
February 3rd, 2011 · No Comments · Blog
> No-one knew what to expect when dawn arrived in Townsville after a relentless night, of storm winds and rain. Just before midnight, when we lost power I managed to file this piece to the Guardian in London: Cyclone Yasi had arrived.
> At 2pm on Wednesday the wind changed from its usual tropical laziness into something purposeful and strong. The pressure too changed and the colour of the sky and sea transformed from that morning’s metallic grey to a dust-red hue. I leant my bike against a pylon on a pier in the middle of the Strand – Townsville’s most famous beachfront attraction – and the first front of Category 5, Tropical Cyclone Yasi immediately threatened to blow it away.
