Cyclone in Northeastern Australia

I have a question for our Aussie frineds...HB says a cyclone is coming into northeastern Australia at 180 MPH.

I hope none of you all are close to there!

If you are, hang on tight!

I saw that...and from what I understand, they can't really assess the damage yet, because it's still blowing.

God be with them.

Let's hope that Brooksy and all our Australian friends are doing OK.
