Spare a thought for the Torres Islands
Cyclone Yasi this past weekend, shortly after having passed directly over the Torres group, North Vanuatu. Click to enlarge.
And here is another image, taken about a half a day after the one above, in which the storm is clearly on its way to becoming a monster.
(Belated note: for some reason I originally wrote the name down as cyclone Yunis…I don’t know what was going through my head…)
