YOUR STORY: Marcia was one of the most severe cyclones

I have been through six cyclones, three of which were severe. Marcia was a severe cyclone.

The people of Rockhampton endured much structural, tree and infrastructure damage and many, many of us still wait for domestic repairs to be completed on structural damage.

Most of Rockhampton and surrounds were without power for seven to 10 days.

Marcia was one of the most severe cyclones to hit the Qld coast in recorded history.
