Cyclone Ingrid is closing in on far north Queensland. Locals are prepared:
A lone resident of Plantation Island, off the bay, where Captain William Bligh famously landed after a 40-day journey following the mutiny on The Bounty, was battening down.
“I don’t think I’ll have a roof tomorrow,” David Glasheen said from the island.
“This one is behaving pretty strangely. I am working on the premise that I will lose all of the roofs in the whole place here, hopefully the buildings will stay. I’ve got plenty of cold beer.”
Beer aside, this could turn out very bad. Best of luck to the cycloners.
