    At least there were only minor injuries among the people, but it sounds like the farmers in the area have had their crops devastated...bananas and sugar cane. There was damage to the Great Barrier Reef as well.

    I hope all our Australian members are safe and sound and far from this region.

    Alex is out west. The cyclone hit Queensland on the northeast coast around Cairns.

    I have a few friends and maybe some cousins up that way. Still waiting to find out how folks are.
