Weather Warnings - Severe Weather Warning

Bureau of Meteorology
Queensland Regional Office



Issued at 8:56 am Saturday, 2 May 2015.

Synoptic Situation:

The low that affected southeast Queensland during Friday is now situated over
northeast New South Wales and is expected to continue moving south during today.

Powerful surf conditions are expected to continue today about southeast
Queensland beaches, south of Fraser Island to the Qld/NSW border. However, the
surf is not expected to reach the dangerous levels that were experienced during
Friday and as a result the Severe Weather Warning for the Southeast Coast
district is now CANCELLED.

The powerful surf conditions should gradually abate into Sunday, but the
situation will continue to be monitored and further warnings will be issued if

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* Avoid driving, walking or riding through flood waters.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

Warnings are also available through TV and Radio broadcasts, the Bureau's
website at www.bom.gov.au or call 1300 659 219. The Bureau and Queensland Fire
and Emergency Services would appreciate warnings being broadcast regularly.
