Why someone felt the need
to say these were pictures from Hurricane Isabel is known only to

They were posted by an Australian pilot on a website of pictures

TruthOrFiction.com was able to track him down.
He says the pictures were taken by a friend of his around the time

The pictures were taken over a two day period in and near Port
One of them is from the deck of one of the iron ore ships that sail in and out of Port
The second picture was taken as the storm was adjacent a salt mine
at Port Hedland.

city council has a pre-cyclone
clean-up period for three weeks every year in October.
