Earlier this evening I have been watching ABC Live 24 on the internet. All the coverage is of course on cyclone Yasi, which is a Category 5 cyclone with winds expected of 300 km/hr. Tens of thousands are in community shelters and a lot have gone inland.
During the broadcast they connected to their reporter in Townsville, who gave a very Australian summary of the known damage – he listed the damage to local area pubs!
You have to love the Australian sense of priorities. Hilarious.
