The bay I live in Horseshoe Bay got quite a storm surge on Yasi's tail,our Foreshore was destroyed but they are slowly cleaning up, had about 1 metre high of sand deposited on the road and in the parks,it's now 13 days since yasi and they are still working 8 hour days clearing it up with earth moving equip.the pic below is of the toilet block 300metres from our home,we were lucky no surge as we are protected but lots and lots of tree damage.4 coconuts downed on our power/phone lines and not one fallen towards the house,all fell away from the home,the debris cleanup is enormous.We got the equivalent of a Cat3 Ann would have got the Cat 4.
