Australian east coast storm event

The Australian east coast storm event of 4 –5 the June affected the entire eastern seaboard region producing heavy rain, strong winds and powerful surf.

In particular, the coastal zone was impacted by an uncommon combination of large wave heights and very long period, north-easterly swell waves, strong onshore wind sand some of the highest tides of the year.

This resulted insignificant beach erosion, overtopping and some structural damage at the extreme southern ends of beaches unfortunately lives were lost when people where washing off rocks during the storm.

The attached report gives you a greater understanding of the danger in such a storm system which re-emerged last week end.
