Ex-cyclone Seth still threatens Queensland coast


Dozens of beaches in Queensland were closed as ex-tropical cyclone Seth approached the Gold and Sunshine coasts, bringing with it huge waves and gale-force winds.

Waves up to 9 metres were recorded off Brisbane and Tweed Heads, according to government wave monitoring buoys, while the Bureau of Meteorology issued a hazardous surf warning for the state.

The ex-tropical cyclone is generating swells that are affecting the south-east coast of Queensland and the north coast of New South Wales, with residents advised to stay away from beaches.

Surf Life Saving Queensland closed all beaches on the Gold Coast, as well as some on the Sunshine Coast and in the Wide Bay Capricorn region, with high tides exacerbating conditions.
