Well this is the start of the season of Hurricanes known as Tropical Cyclones in our part of the middle/southern Pacific.
Last year the place of my birth, Niue Island was smaaaaaaashed by one cyclone.
At least 50% of the buildings were flattened including the only Hospital.
It is slowly getting back to normal.
I have just this minute realized that I have had personal experience of a Cyclone.
Circa 1967/68 I remember having to take shelter in my parents room overnight while the storm was raging.
In the morning the windows were smashed and water filled the rest of the house.
A huge tree had been blown over in the back yard, but being 4 odd years old everything looked big.lol
Have you had a similar experience?
They predict 7 to 9 biggies for this year.
(Always wondered why this time of the year was cheaper? lol
