Thought I would post this satellite image of Cyclone Yasi, the remnants of cyclone Anthony can be seen in the bottom corner for comparison.
Tropical cyclone Storm Organism Colorfulness Geological phenomenon

They can't yet predict with any accuracy where it will make landfall. Somwhere between Hervey bay and Cape York. The whole state may be screwed....again

The image posted is deceiving, as TC Anthony is well inland, and has lost a lot of its grunt. Landfall is wide open at the moment, for both time/date, and location. I hope its not too far south.

Not quite Old.School.Hero, each meteorology region has a list of names, based on their region and starting at A thru to Z. Depending on where they are up to decides the name. They also take into account the size and ferocity of the cyclone so they can jump names. As Yasi started outside our region, we did not name it. To give a bit of perspective on its size, I read that when it makes landfall, it has the potential to make Larry look like a summer storm.
I feel for the folks of Queensland, they can't take a trick at the moment.
On another note, I like the sound of Cyclone Truckster.
Cheers,

Greetings,
man this Yasi bloke has got the whole town talking.
The latest predicted tidal surge of 4 m has me more worried. I should be right but am worried and saying prayers for family and freinds closer to the coast.
