    so the MET department as usual got all predictions wrong again? But we are happy that no harm to people or property

    The mountain in labour produced a mouse. The joke usually mentioned is when the local met dept predicts a weather report we have to interpret it according to the opposite. Even jokes become reality

    We cannot say that their predictions were wrong. No one can predict very accurately what the actual harm would be.

    The media went to town! Blew up the entire Cyclone story out of proportion. Glad nothing happened to people's properties and or lives.
