Unbelievable!
The horror this town must have felt.The only good thing is that the death toll was not higher than it was.
But one is too many.

That destruction reminds me of Cyclone Tracy that hit Darwin on Christmas day 1974, when 74 people were killed and 30,000 people evacuated to the southern cities. 90% of the city was destroyed.

The only good to come of it was that houses were rebuilt as "Cyclone proof" if there can be such a thing.

Of course, our mates from the US deployed in a little known and overlooked support role.





Back then, when I was a boy, there was no internet, limited satellite images for warning and live outside broadcasts were not common, It took a few days for images to filter through.

Many residents did not return and made a new life down south.

Darwin is now a thriving city and has the highest growth rate of any Australian city. Mainly due to relocation of military units to "The Top End".
