Not sure if this is the best place for it but I've been browsing the weatherzone forums for STC Yasi and it makes interesting reading.

http://forum.weatherzone.com.au/ubbthre ... 941993/105

There's a lot of rumor and fear at the mo, but one thing for certain. This beast is huge. 700km+ gale area, nearly 2500km across the cloud disc and another thousand or so if you count the outer arms.

This is the beastie (2.5kms ago) in IR.

Can kinda understand looking at this, why people believed in sky and storm gods.

All these flashing signatures are becoming mildly irritating...
