One year on from Cyclone Debbie, what is the most powerful memory you have of the Category 4 storm?
❝ Probably just the change in the landscape. We still notice the difference in the hills and at the islands.
— Jedd Larter, Cannonvale
❝ Definitely how the community came together; people set up their own volunteer groups; it was amazing.
— Kellie Chart, Cannonvale
❝I came to visit and I saw the trees were all gone and the coral had been destroyed around the inner reefs.
— David Liptak, Blue Mountains
❝I think the biggest thing it created was some mental issues (PTSD) around the place. It was a rugged bloody cyclone.
— Kevin Macarthur, Cannonvale
community spirit is what I remember. How everybody pulled together and helped everyone out.
— Ron Watts, Cannonvale
that were 30 days without power and two weeks without water.
