Mm, running a tad late for WOYWW or What is on your workdesk Wednesday over here, at the moment hosted again by our Lunch Lady Jan (Thanks, dear LLJ!).
All up and down the east coast of Australia, from Gold Coast, Queensland to Tasmania there has been tremendous storm damage from a huge east east coast low. it wasn't just one system but two that joined up and also it coincided rather unhappily with the June King tides..
|SURFS UP... wave anyone?|
|Foaming breakers on rock wall, you could not go down the rock wall as normal, as it was breaking over it well and truly as later images show.|
|The waves breaking over distant rock wall into the marina, this is at almost low tide. Five hours later at 8:30pm, when another king tide hit, the high thundering waves destroyed some marina walkways, office building and sunk two yachts.|
|People had to be rescued from their yachts/ boats 'cos they couldn't get along marina walkways. They've had to leave boats now as the walkways in some places are destroyed.|
|Impact of waves pounding this office also collapsed the marina Office building, it fell in on itself.|
|Creek and beach area near home, storm surge came up onto grassed area and beyond to trees..|
|A lot of the beach was washed away, and has been deposited in creek mouth clogging it up more.|
|Peaceful now, after the storm...|
...this is the Lord; we have waited for him, we will be glad and rejoice in his salvation." Isaiah 25:9b
