Here I took a few pics of our property.
|This 100 plus year old mango tree was uprooted not far from our bedroom.|
|The roots simply ripped out of the earth with the tremendous force of the winds.|
|Our machinery shed has a new skylight due to sheets of corrugated iron being ripped off during the cyclone.|
|Native trees are striped of leaves and bark hence their orange colour|
|Luckily for us bananas are not our lively hood but we won’t be enjoying any bananas from these plants for many months.|
|The sugarcane crops lie at a 45 degree angle.|
|This dwelling once housed cane cutters of the district and now was good extra storage for our farm.|
|Trees snapped and in the background the sugar cane almost lies horizontal.|
In the following days as we were able to get around I took a few more photos but honestly it was just too overwhelming to keep taking photos.
|The local high school grounds.|
|These steel 6 tonne capacity sugar cane “bins” were tossed about as though they were cardboard boxes.|
|The Australian Army arrived to lend a helping hand.|
