The impact of a cyclone on a community can be disruptive and destructive. Cyclones and floods disorder our sense of place, community and comfort.
After a cyclone, many essential services may not be working, roads may be closed, food and water could be in short supply and your property or livelihood could be damaged.
It can be a frightening and disturbing time to pick up the pieces and start all over again. But getting back to normal as quickly as possible is an important part of the recovery process.
DFES’s Cyclone Smart brochure (PDF - 955 KB) can give you tips to help you get back on your feet and recover from a cyclone.
