Tropical cyclone Daryl

Tropical cyclone Daryl has battered Timor with fierce winds for the past four or five days. Destroyed were approximately 200 houses and corn crops in several districts. This has caused serious problems for the Timorese in the affected districts because a food shortage is likely due to the severely impaired corn harvest. At home in the evenings in Rai Kotu we enjoyed the cool air the winds brought with it while wondering about the cause in the change of weather, not thinking that there could be serious consequences for Timorese subsistence farming families. The category 3 storm originated off the northwest coast of Australia.
