Cheers, Debbie is making landfall over Bowen very soon about 1400km North. Brisbane is a long way down from there luckily.
Its not looking great, tipped to reach a Cat 4 Cyclone (up to 280kmh using our intensity scale).
Hoping it de-intensifies and dissipates quickly. Crossing our fingers the damage is minimal and the locals all stay safe.

Bit of piss and wind by the looks, not their first.
Let the clean up commence.

Looks like we have the tail end heading our way expecting 8" of rain in 24 hours 40 to 60 mph winds.
Should be fun riding to work :D

Holy crap! Hope you guys and your families are ok.

Living in FL, I'm quite familiar with Hurricane preparedness and how devastating a storm can be.

Best of luck,

South Queensland and northern NSW got smashed by the flood waters. Some rivers peaking 11mtr over on a sunny day. Even took out the road over springbrook, pine mountain road. Hope everyone in here was high and dry.

We're all good but can't go to far at the moment as the tweed valley way is still blocked and Nerang Murwillumbah road is blocked also.
I went for a bit of a drive today and can't believe the mess a lot of homes and shops flooded out cars flooded out and debris,There was even someone's hot water system laying on the side of the road plus garage doors bent up and mud on the road the river must have been pumping.
So you saying Springbrook road is washed out or just flooded?
I hope it's not to bad up there as I love that bit of road :D

Springbrook Rd got washed away, I think a temp repair has it open again.
Some of my favourite roads are down that way, Numinbah Valley, Sprinbrook and surrounds are wonderful.
Mt Glorious road is covered with rocks and branches, so not suitable for bikes.
Be staying away for a bit until its all cleaned up.
I survived without issue but a lot of guys in northern NSW have copped a belting.

We only lost power at home (east of Brisbane) for 14 hrs and have a wayward rear fence now (leaning at about 10 degrees).
Work closed the office for 2 days (City) but rode through the rain and wind both days.
Quite trivial compared to all the destruction in QLD and NSW.
Was a lot worse than they anticipated. Northern NSW looks like Brisbane in 2011 .... feeling for everyone affected.

We got the remnants of cyclone Debbie hitting us now, nearly 200mm of rain, and some big wind coming, last weekend we got big swells rolling in, couldn't take my boat out 1.5 meter swells breaking over the bar, surfers were having a ball.

Psycho Debbie has done a lot of damage. The weather patterns have certainly changed a lot in my lifetime I just wonder what's coming next?
