We're fine

George missed us completely, we didn't even get as much rain as we'd been expecting. Port Red Dirt wasn't so lucky though - it appears to have scored a fairly direct hit but we're waiting for more info to come through. George is now inland and is posing a threat to some of the small communities and mining ventures in it's path. There is still some danger of tidal surge along the coastal areas, but that's higher up the coast from us. We are off Yellow and have been given the all clear "with caution" but schools and most businesses are closed.
I'll check in a little later after I have spoken with our friends in Port Red Dirt and checked that they are all okay.

I'm so glad to hear that y'all are safe and were spared a hit from the cyclone. Hope your weather cools off a bit.
