6:09 pm
a reminder that they live in one of the most cycloid prone of australia we've dodged a bullet but you know this is the sort of stuff that happens in this area or end when it does he does it you know it creates a significant amount of damage you know how about people's preparations for this everyone takes this very seriously look at complacency is a worst thing that can happen in a community end and dead the community itself pulled together and they got very prepared for the cycle and so you know what we will well prepared for there is also the economic impact of storms like this one this part of western australia provides much of the world's iron ore and a lot of it goes through places like port hedland normally the horizon here would be full of cargo ships waiting to take iron ore out to the world's markets and the speculation that this disruption will of caused doc all effect even to steel production in china it may only be temporary but it is
