Hazardous surf warning still in place on the Gold Coast

The clean up from Cyclone Oma has been delayed, as a hazardous surf warning remains in place on the Gold Coast.

The Weather Bureau has this morning cancelled their severe weather warning for the coast, with rough weather from Cyclone Oma subsiding.

King tides combined with the cyclonic conditions wreaked havoc on the coastline over the weekend, with some areas showing 2-3 metres tall cliffs as a result.


The Main Beach and Narrowneck stretches suffered the worst effects from the large swells.

Council is set to deploy machinery to fix the areas as soon as the wild swells subside.

All Gold Coast beaches are expected to remain closed today, with the hazardous surf warning likely to continue into tomorrow as well.

While the severe weather warning has been cancelled, locals are still being urged to beware of fallen trees and power lines, and not to drive, walk or ride in flood waters.
