Back in 1983 we had a cyclone named Tracy strike on December 23 which virtually flattened all of suburban Darwin - to the extent that in one suburb only six houses were left habitable - and left a refrigerator on top of the Travelodge motel - six floor up.
If this wasn't bad enough there was a song; "Santa never made it into Darwin cos a big wind blew it away...'
30 years later we still don't know which was the worst.
