Cyclone Marcia is currently wreaking considerable havoc on the east coast of Australia, with wind gusts of just under 300 kilometres per hour causing property damage, power outages and flooding in various parts of Queensland.

Word quickly spread about the interpreter’s flair on Twitter under the #signguy hashtag, producing a number of very entertaining screenshots indeed.
