Storm damage around Gold Coast/NE NSW

Post  hillybilly on Tue May 26, 2009 8:11 am

Some amazing photos at http://www.goldcoast.com.au/article/2009/05/26/82175_gold-coast-lead-story.html (and links). I imagine a few million $ has been wiped of the value of the properties.

The EPA wave site has a table ranking the top wave events during the past few decades the gauges have been up.

Saturday's 6.2 Hsig and 11m peak wave height (and the crucial period being a very high 14 seconds) at Gold Coast Seaway ranks as a new number two in the following table when it is to be updated. Gauge installed in 1987.
