Default Katrina size Hurricane about to hit Queensland, Australia.

http://www.news.com.au/breaking-news...-1225998711771

It's actually a Cyclone, but man, tough few weeks for Queenslanders. First the floods now this.Look at the size of the fkn thing. I've got family in Cairns, trying to find out if they are evacuating or not.

Anyone here have to deal with Katrina? Here's hoping everyone stays safe.

I've never been a believer in doomsday theories, but man, I've been thinking about it a fair bit lately. So much crazy sheit going on. We even had a swarm of Locust things hit here last week in Perth.

Yeah, seems like they are very organized this time around. Hopefully people dont act stupid and try stay to 'protect' their houses.

yea i been through hurricanes, make sure your house is boarded up. if you have a generator that's a plus. if not have some flashlights. keep some water around as well as snacks close by you. Even if you decide to evacuate, board the house just in case. Oh get plenty of gasoline for your car or generator, etc.

after that its up to mother nature to decide whether to spare your home or not.

The Mayan runes were mistranslated-it really said 2012 was the end of the world only for Australia.
