Cairns noisy but under control

THE storm has really intensified over here.

Still got water, still have power, and some of the lights in the CBD are still on but the trees are violently shaking around here.

You can hear the gusts of wind push against the building and there’s almost like a high-pitched whistle as the wind pushes through little cracks in the glass.

But it’s still under control – no mass panic but a heck of a lot of wind going on at the moment .
