    Tropical Cyclone Sandra passed just to the east of Lord Howe Island last night as a category 2 system. Highest gusts reported from the island were 146km/h at Windy Point at 10.18pm while the airport weather station had a top gust of 120km/h at 9pm. Gusts over 100km/h persisted for more than 10 hours.

    Shown here is the satellite image taken around the same time as the strongest gusts.

    More than a week ago some of the weather models had this cyclone passing across SEQ/ NE NSW so we are fortunate it took a more typical sort of track.
