24th December 1974 10 am They were wrong!!

Early this morning the cyclone changed direction and rounded Bathurst Island 70km north of Darwin and heading straight towards us!! I wish I didn’t research cyclones because I now know the cyclone will intensify when it reaches land. I am so scared.

Weather report ABC NEWS: Early in the morning of 24 December, Tracy rounded Cape Fourcroy on the western tip of Bathurst Island, and moved in a southeasterly direction, straight towards Darwin. The bureau’s weather station at Cape Fourcroy measured a mean wind speed of 120 kilometres per hour (75 mph) at 9 a.m that morning.
