Cyclone Ita update

Woken at 5 am to a tree falling on house near my bedroom and it's now resting on my roof...thankfully it too was long and skinny (like yesterdays one..not me...oh I wish I was long and skinny though) and doesn't look to have done a great deal of damage. Raining heavily and quite strong winds right now....huge red wood tree near garage still standing PHEW. Oh and at this stage we still have power on woot. Ita is still on the way but at the moment is only a Cat 2 as it hits us so winds around 130kms plus an hour. Here is 7 am BOM update...



Cooktown seems to have fared relatively Ok...of course some roofs off but no fatalities reported thank goodness. It does make me worry about pets and critters in general. I counted ten baby white lipped tree frogs on the kitchen window outside last night. I so wanted to go out a take a photo but it was just raining too much.
Poor Minty dog is too scared to go out for her morning ablutions ! I hope that changes...ah there is enough eerr "wet" things here already! When the rains settle we will go look at the creeks but I strongly suspect the roads are cut...forced to do art due to weather...how bad can it be.

Crikey !!! At the least the tree wasn't a big one. ! I am glad you are OK so far. It is a shame about all the critters and stuff though. :-( Hopeful that not too many people with have mega damage in all this.
Thinking of you xxxxxxxxx

Oh my, Stay safe. I usually go into hyper cleaning mode in tornadic weather here. My friend is like, we have to go to the basement. I just can't stand to go cause it's the best chance of my house getting a good cleaning. LOL
