March 20th, 2006 - I put together a whole bunch of footage from today's cyclone/hurricane. Everyone seemed to wake up at 6am when it hit. At the time it wasn't too intense, but after an hour it started to pick up. Innisfail was hit only about an hour before Cairns (it's roughly an hour drive away). When it hit Innisfail it had wind speeds recorded of up to 290 km/hour, and remained fairly steady as it drifted inland.
At 11:30am, well and truly after it had headed away and towards Atherton, I ventured out into the city and drove around the suburbs to get some shots. Many, many trees have been uprooted, buildings have been damaged, a lot of gas station and hotel signs are either bent, or lying smashed on the ground. Also, the old "Welcome to Cairns" sign next to Earlville has been torn in half, and the same goes to tarps at car yards.
The power was out for 11 hours at my suburb in Cairns, and about 2-3 full days later most of the rest of the city got their powerback. Gordonvale is expected to wait until the weekend (a whole week later). Innisfail has been pretty much completely wiped out.
For those of you who have never been in a hurricane/cyclone before, this is probably as close to it as you'll be. I'd like to get as many people to see this as possible, so please spread the word!
