Tourists admitted entry to The Whitsundays’ Daydream Island just before Cyclone Debbie’s arrival are preparing to file a formal complaint against the resort’s operator, claiming they weren’t warned of the impending category four storm.
Cleland said the resort “didn’t give us any indication we would be trapped on the island itself.” As a result, he and his wife joined many others who had to bunker down on the island during the storm.
Some pictures of the devastation on Daydream Island that my sister sent me. ???? My family are marooned but they’re alive and well. Still waiting on word of when they will be rescued. It just goes to show that you can’t take any one or any minute of this life for granted. Sending love to Queensland. ???? #cyclonedebbie #7news #9news #sendinglovetoqueensland #australia #cyclone
