Default [OT] Cyclone Larry update

If any of you folks were wondering about Cyclone Larry, the Category 5
cyclone (hurricane) that hit north east Australia a few days ago, there was
massive property damage, but no loss of human life. Unfortunately, the
banana and sugar cane crops have been totalled, and except for tourism, the
economy is pretty much based on those two crops. Its going to be a very
tough year for people up there in Innisfail and surrounds. Still, the people
seem to be in good spirits (as far as one can be) and our government is,
much to my surprise, appearing to be relatively generous to those who find
themselves homeless and/or jobless. Most won't have power for a few weeks,
some in the remote areas probably won't have power for months (with water
and sewerage implications that go with that), and at the moment relief
efforts and the delivery of same are being hampered by yet more heavy rain.

If you can spare a thought/purr/prayer and/or get the bloody rain to ease up
for the people hit by our version of Katrina, they'd surely appreciate it.
There will probably be some sort of disaster appeal sooner or later, I'll
post details when I know.

well, seems Mother Nature is certainly trying to make up for lost time,
isn't she? 2005 was a terrible year all around for disasters all over the
world. Purrs and prayers for everyone in the affected area in Australia.

Purrs and prayers for the rain to stop, so those poor people can start
figuring out how to recover.
