Verse of The Day
“Ka mea a Ihu ki a ia, Kia whakapaua tou ngakau, tou wairua, tou hinengaro, ki te aroha ki te Ariki, ki tou Atua. Ko te tuatahi tenei, ko te kupu nui. He rite ano te tuarua ki tenei, Kia aroha koe ki tou hoa tata, ano ko koe.” (Matthew 22:37-39)

Storm Damage and erosion on the Gold Coast Northern Beaches. Giant seas caused extensive damage at the Spit. Photographer: Glenn Hampson


The latest Bureau of Meteorology warning says the Gold Coast will experience wind gusts of 110 and 120km/h, as well as low-level inundation in canal and protected waters later today and this evening. The next update will be at 5pm.

"A deep low pressure trough lying just south of Coolangatta is expected to move northwards during the day, reaching Fraser Island this evening," says the warning.

"The combination of this trough and a strong high pressure system over the southern Tasman Sea is currently producing strong gales and extremely dangerous waves along the northern NSW coast.

"These will rapidly spread into southeast Queensland waters today.

"The current very dangerous surf conditions along the southeast coast will become even more dangerous during the day.

"Very large, strong and extremely dangerous waves are expected to develop along with gale force onshore winds over the waters south of Cape Moreton during the morning, and extend northwards reaching Sandy Cape (on Fraser Island) in the afternoon and evening.
