Cyclone Yasi

This is my beautiful sister, Emma. She and her husband live in Cairns in the path of cyclone Yasi. She rang yesterday to let us know that they had left their home to stay somewhere safer with friends. We are waiting to hear how they got through the night. She is such a wonderful person - the most happy, postive, likeable person I know. It's hard having her live far away in Australia. I have three sisters and a brother and I love them so much!

These few words move me much: too often we forget how important they are sisters and brothers...
I'll give you best wishes in the hope that the storm passes without doing damage to people and things (especially those you love!)
Mini hugs, Flora

Carolyn, we have been watching the path of this cyclone, as we know people in north Queensland, too. After the Brisbane floods, this is so very hard.
I hope your sister will be safe.

Carolyn,

I too hope your sister is safe and does not suffer great property loss.

It is unimaginable to think of the hardships the people of Queensland have had this summer.

this is a terrible moment for the whole of Australia, for those who have suffered losses this summer, for those who are in danger of losing your home now, to their distant relatives ...
Unfortunately, no one can do nothing against the force of nature!
But Australians are a nation strong and proud, I hope with all my heart that the storm could pass without hurting anyone, nor people, nor the houses.
I embrace you strong, brave!
let us know how's your sister!
Caterina

Hola Caroline!!! Espero que tu hermana se encuentre a salvo y que pase el ciclón sin dejar desgracias personales y que las perdidas materiales sean minimas!!
La fuerza de la naturaleza está haciendo estragos en tantos paises!!! Lamentablemente nada podemos hacer para luchas contra ella. Solo tener confianza y la esperanza de que pase pronto y sin dejar desgracias a su paso.
Un abrazo.
Olga
