Where did I say there was no risk to human life huh? Point out where I said that? There's always risk to human life in a cyclone event
You dont even understand what Im saying. The observations coming in have winds nowhere near 300km/h. Flinders Reef, which is well within 50 km's of the eye is only experiencing gusts of up to 167km/h, which is a long way below the 300km/h winds the media is claiming.
VERY DESTRUCTIVE winds with gusts up to 290 km/h are expected to develop between Cairns and Ingham during the next few hours as the cyclone approaches. These VERY DESTRUCTIVE winds will extend inland to the nearby ranges including the Atherton Tablelands.
Due to the large size of the cyclone, people in the path of the VERY DESTRUCTIVE WINDS are likely to experience these conditions for about 3 to 4 hours.
DESTRUCTIVE winds with gusts in excess of 125 km/h between Cape Tribulation and Ayr are expected to spread inland overnight.
DAMAGING WINDS with gusts to 90 km/hr are occurring in remaining coastal areas between Cape Flattery and Proserpine, and are forecast to spread inland and west to Mt Isa during Thursday.

BOM is estimating wind gusts OVER 300 km/h..

It's NOT a time to play down the problem..
Prepare for the worst and hope for the best..
Great motto in times like these...
