Debbie Maclean - Back in my dinosaur years..the Red Flag was flown above the East St Post Office, this was the notice that said all schools and businesses were closed. The phone exchange girls notified some people who in turn used the "Party Line" to get the message out. No one was allowed on the streets unless absolutely necessary.

Jo Stoyel  - Sounds more controlled then now :) thanks for sharing

Katie Wilkes - Le smileys in Gracemere posted they will not be opening tomorrow due to cyclone

Nardyne Langdon - Catholic Schools have pupils free day tomorrow in Rocky

Sharon Hill - Rocky High advising after 2pm today. I am not taking my daughter

Trilby Lovison - Emmaus student maybe sent home today, they will advise later.
