Whitsunday Times - - NEWS -

A MAN re­ported miss­ing dur­ing Cy­clone Deb­bie has been found safe, Chan­nel 9 re­ports.

Ear­lier, Jenny Clarke was des­per­ately seek­ing help to find her hus­band who she last spoke to dur­ing the peak of the cy­clone when he called to say the roof was com­ing off their house.

Mrs Clarke said she spoke to her hus­band David Clarke, 68, about 10am on Tues­day when he called her to say the roof had lifted off their house on Pat­ullo Rd, Proser­pine.

“He called me to say the roof had come off and the ceil­ing caved in, one of the side doors was blown off and he pushed some­thing heavy against it,” she said.

“I can’t re­mem­ber ex­actly but he said some­thing like ‘I’m not go­ing to win this one’.

“I called the po­lice at about 10.30am but there was noth­ing they could do be­cause of the lock­down so I have no idea what has hap­pened.”
