Tropical Cyclone Damien is due to hit Karratha by mid-Saturday, at which point it’ll be at either Cat 3 or 4 strength.

We’re at Blue Alert: once we hit Red, it’ll be lights out for us for the duration– we’ll be locked on the house and unable to leave until we receive the all-clear.

The stocking-up has well and truly begun: this is what Woolies looked like at 10am today.
