We live st Peregian Beach- this was not ex TC Debbie but still a cat 1-2 full on at 5.30pm. Went from winds of 100 kms per hour to approximately 150-160km for an hour or so. Our sliding glass door popped and all I could hear was glass smashing- then bi fold doors thrown open. With everything smashing round me-
Very dangerous situation but remembered by cyclone prep as a nthqlder.
Surely there should have been more info!! Bom do great job but I know of new house unroofed due to poor workmanship at Peregian Beach but lots of people left dumbfounded by verocity of it- I survived Althea so have experienced a few.
Don’t want to do blame game at all because government doing great job but thinking maybe rethink on advising people?? Cheers
