Cyclone Tracy 05

Darwin, Northern Territory

This shot was taken a day after the cyclone when we had cleared some of the roof beams from the front of the house and were looking for possessions worth salvaging. There was not much worth keeping as everything had been soaked by the 255mm (10 ins) of rain that the cyclone dumped on the city. That is my brother Neil on the left wearing a plastic garbage bag to protect himself from the drizzle that persisted for a while after the cyclone.
