Thoughts of family make cyclone personal

Like many other New Zealanders I have family in Australia and this time last year I was visiting my brother, sister-in-law and three nieces in Townsville.

A cyclone kit came up in conversation but I thought no more about it until the news that Cyclone Yasi was heading for the city.

It is impossible for anyone who hasn’t experienced it to comprehend the ferocity of a category 4 cyclone but thoughts of family have made this one personal and I am waiting anxiously for news they are all safe.
