Looks like Coogee Surf Club got absolutely smashed by the King Tide and 8 metre waves last night. :(

I'm hearing that the boatshed with all the rubber duckies and surfboats has also been decimated. It was located much lower further down on the beach.

My rowing crew will be devastated.

Mate of mine lives in north narra in the low lying area on the western side north of the bridge. You can have home insurance including flood but the line item for flood should you tick it was listed at $12k per annum.........

Satellite picture and radar showing a weak low rotating through west and central Victoria and heading NE. Might be enough to bring a little moisture to the alps.

@Undies - how did the lagoon fair in the end? Not hearing any news of flooding in Queenscliff despite it all. I would have expected some?

Yeah, was quite flooded at the beach end, with waves rolling up under the bridge and water close to the playground.

The Pittwater Rd end was starting to fill up last I saw of it, and that was before high tide so I'd expect some inundation there. Those houses that back onto the golf course part of the lagoon are on borrowed time. Quite a few of those backyards would have been under.

You out of town?!

Yup, in Italy. Not too much would happen to our place I expect, carpark is biggest risk. We had a blocked drain flood our place a while back so as long as upstairs cleans their outside area it's all good. Haven't heard from the house sitter yet.

Damage at fairy bower end is epic!

Any updates? You haven't had to break out the surfboard yet have you? :p
All good at my place thanks Yardsale. It was an eye opening drive back from work this evening after the high tide at lunchtime dumped yatchs and trees on beaches etc. Still two elderly folk missing and half of my local town is very badly flooded (Latrobe Tasmania). There's some sad pictures on facebook of livestock being washed away. Seriously devastating floods and it ain't over yet......

I almost lost me puppy in the froth at Tathra, no air . he almost died. Had to do like an avalanche rescue to find him. He could hardly breath in the froth. Wigged me out all day.
lucky puppy. You could have surfed the swell on the bega river last night the car park at the heritage center had small waves going thru it :thumbs:

of all of the BOM statons, it seems that Coolangatta recorded the most rainfall.

Over Friday night and Saturday they accumulated around 360mm
Rain gauge at Robertson reporting 600mm for last 7 days. I assume most of that is since Friday night. Sunday total was 350mm odd. Turramurra also reporting 365mm in the gauge for the event.

Seriously, having spent a lot of my child hood years on the northern beaches (MIND YOU THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO), this has been a repetitive issue for at least 3 decades. No surprise that these properties have been at risk. Aint nothing gonna save you from mother nature. Would have got out of there years ago. Not to say that I dont feel for those folk but writing has been on the wall for a long time.
