Dangerous surf warning issued for Coast beaches


A high in the Tasman Sea is working with a low pressure system off the Queensland coast to push developing seas towards the southeast coast of Queensland.

Damaging surf conditions are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as rock fishing, swimming or surfing.

Locations which may be affected include Gold Coast, Maroochydore, Moreton Island, Noosa Heads, Caloundra 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.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.
