Tie down of caravans in Port Hedland

I am sure we have all heard of the cyclones that hit the coastal north of
Australia from time to time and Port Hedland is often in the path of these
cyclones. This was very evident when we saw the reasonably permanent
caravans at the Big 4 caravan park in Port Hedland all tied down. They had
between six and eight tie down points using either steel chains or canvas
tie downs.

We could only imagine what it must be like to be living in a caravan when
the big winds came through. It would be extremely scary. Fortunately for
us, we had no wind or warnings of cyclones while we were there.

There are a large number of permanent caravans in the caravan park and they
all had the vans tied down so it was obviously necessary evil and not just
someone's whim. We will be thinking of these guys when we hear a cyclone
warning in the future.
