I thought you may like to see a couple of the links regarding Cyclone Ita which is now Category 5 - worse than Yasi.
However, all locals are prepared and used to these things. We just hope it passes our way without too much bother.
It is a bit offputting that Atherton is not shown on the map as we are ones in line with Innisfail which usually cops it and we should be prepared as well this time as we will be getting wind before the coast this time as it heads back out south of us. It is reverse for us in comparison with Larry in 2006. (Yasi didn't affect Atherton at all except for rain).
There is continuous reporting on it of course and it gets a bit boring so I decided to post something for you all here.
Atherton Live Weather has a page on Facebook which I think some of you may be able to see.
Another interesting group is aus cyclone chasers. Here is a live audio (I hope it works for you) from them on the road. Not sure how long it goes for or if continuous now. They are from Townsville and are obviously up Cooktown way today. I guess you can come back to here throughout the day or weekend to see what they are up to.
Anyway all quiet here in Atherton at present. We have had some steady rain this morning but all still at present and nothing much to report. Just read 15 mls in gauge. That will be nothing to what we should get from tonight onwards.
