Working in and out of Port Hedland for the last five years has certainly been an experience and have seen a few cyclones pass, land and fly over us. Cyclone season is well under way again and we find ourselves with a potentially severe system heading our way once again. And once again I've started this thread to share with the AP community life in a cyclone!
BOM's tracking map can be found here: http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDW60281.shtml
Just as well it's the start of my swing and I'm not expected to fly home by the time it hits (unlike my workers!) Another plus is that we are finally seeing cloud in the sky!! So to kick it off, here's an image I took just after lunch of that track a few metres away from my office door! WE NEED THE RAIN TOO!!!

I will keep everyone updated on the progress of the cyclone through further information and pictures I will post here!
