Wild weather across the north and southeast of Queensland erodes beaches and sparkles warnings of flooding
Days of strong precipitation and strong wind have eroded some of the best known beaches of the country and triggered a flash of flooding in South-East Queensland and in North New South Wales.
Some areas of the Gold Coast in the past four days have experienced nearly one meter of rain, allowing emergency services to respond to over 14,000 ring outs.
In parts of northern NSW, flow alerts continue where thousands of residers remain at a standstill for evacuation for five consecutive days of wild weather.
While Queensland experienced rescue on Tuesday and a severe weather alert was cancelled by the Meteorology Bureau on Tuesday morning, the authorities cautioned that the danger was not entirely terminated.
Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said that flooding in common swimming spots in Currumbin and Tallebudgera may be imminent due to run-off from the hinterland.
"We've still got run-off of rain from the mountains coming down to the valley and the water can't get away when there's high tide because the water's high at the seaway, so therefore potential for flash flooding in Currumbin and Tallebudgera area," he said.
Brisbane is worried when the tide enters locations such as Wynnum and popular tourist spots on the islands of Stradbroke and Moreton.
Coastal areas across the south-east of Queensland have been warned to overcome the highest times of the year by up to 30 centimeters on Tuesday evening and Wednesday and cause flooding in lowland areas.
Main Beach in Byron Bay has experienced a significant erosion as more damaging surfing is expected today.
The waves above 5 meters will continue at the famous tourist resort, where the highest winds were reported yesterday, which is 104 kilometers per hour.
The 6-meter swells of Monday's Mayor Simon Richageson said the already fragile coastal region suffered "unprecedented"
For the NSW coast to the Illawarra area, a dangerous surf alert is in place.
BOM forecasters said that in the following days heavy rain is likely to settle, as the weather weakening system will be sluggish, but for the rest of the week more showers are expected.
