Thank you for visiting this site.
Tonight (16th November '07) Severe Tropical Cyclone Guba (Category 3) is about 405 kilometres off the northeast coast of Queensland, in the Coral Sea. The system is expected to travel south before turning southwest towards the coast. However, cyclones are unpredictable to say the least! It is really a wait and see experience.
Those of us who remember many cyclones in our lifetime know only too well that weather systems such as this one are to be respected for what they are. The safest thing to do is to be well prepared.
Listen to information and warnings on the radio and television. Take them seriously.
It is interesting to follow the course of cyclones and learn about meteorology.
Please, where ever you are, think about those who may be in harms way. People do get caught at sea in yachts and other craft. We are hoping and praying this storm will either turn away from the coast or cross the coast in an unpopulated area.
You can find more links about this weather system and cyclones in general in articles written on this site over the past few days. Please, do browse. You are most welcome.
