Heather - Northern Territory

“There’s damage everywhere. The thing that has really struck me is the level of destruction a category 2 cyclone can cause.”

Heather is a specialist emergency volunteer. When Cyclone Marcus hit Darwin earlier this month she’s one of the people we called to help. Over the last few days she’s also had a glimpse of something perhaps just as powerful as a cyclone.

“We’ve seen an amazing neighbourhood spirit that I don’t think we’ve seen before. You can see people supporting the elderly and cleaning up a perfect stranger’s house."
