      Beryl Whitton (nee McWhinney) was born in 1911 in Mount Lawley, Western Australia. She came to Darwin in 1955 and was working as a nurse at the time of Cyclone Tracy. She attributes the limited damage to her house to leaving one window open slightly, thus reducing the pressure. A nearby house that was shut up tightly by its owners before going on holidays, "exploded" during the Cyclone.
