Severe Weather Warning
for ABNORMALLY HIGH TIDES and DANGEROUS SURF
For people in parts of Wide Bay and Burnett and Southeast Coast Forecast Districts.
Issued at 5:00 pm Wednesday, 20 February 2019.
Abnormally high tides and dangerous surf for areas south of Seventeen Seventy.
Weather Situation: At 5pm AEST, tropical cyclone Oma lies over the eastern Coral Sea, approximately 1000 kilometres northeast of Brisbane. Tropical cyclone Oma is forecast to move to the southwest over the next few days, and will generate a significant east to northeasterly swell over southern Queensland beaches. The increasing swell is also expected to combine with king tides.
Dangerous surf conditions are forecast to develop over Fraser Island and Capricornia coastal waters, south of about Seventeen Seventy during Thursday afternoon and evening. These conditions are then expected to extend south over remaining southeastern Queensland coastal waters during Friday. Beach erosion is likely to continue with the hazardous marine conditions.
Water levels on the high tide may exceed the highest tide of the year by around one metre on the morning high tides on Thursday and Friday.
Locations which may be affected include Gold Coast, Maroochydore, Moreton Island, Noosa Heads, Fraser Island, Caloundra, North Stradbroke Island and Rainbow Beach.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Surf Life Saving Australia recommends that you stay out of the water and stay well away from surf-exposed areas.
* Check your property regularly for erosion or inundation by sea water, and if necessary raise goods and electrical items.
* If near the coastline, stay well away from the water's edge.
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* Keep clear of creeks and storm drains.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.
The next Severe Weather Warning will be issued by 11:00 pm AEST Wednesday.
Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 219. The Bureau and Queensland Fire and Emergency Services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
