Hi there,

 

I am in Cairns too, and it is not too bad at the moment. There is some gusting wind and light rain but not much else. It will probably get worse but the track has shifted a little bit south so Cairns is likely to be on the edge of the worst bit.

 

Keep praying, it's working! smile.gif

I checked the news first thing this morning and it said it was down-graded and there were no deaths or injuries. I hope this continues to be the case!

It crossed the coast as a Cat 5. There is significant damage to several communities between Cairns and Townsville but no reported fatalities or serious injuries so far.

 

There was a baby girl born in an evacuation centre in Cains this morning. No name yet but the other evacuees in the centre were voting for Storm.
