When the cyclone hits the coast bringing flash flooding most sensible people are well protected in cyclone refuge areas or on higher ground. Trevor on the other hand is out there doing what he can with his well trained team of volunteers saving lives. He's now decided to help those with leukaemia so he's growing a wild and wooly beard with ...
