Storm Zone

Posted: Feb 5, 2013

From January 20 to 30, one of the most devastating storms of the decade ravaged the North East coast of Australia, particularly South East Queensland. The remnants of Cyclone Oswald slowly made its way down the coast, inflicting damage to everything in its path and inundating homes with record breaking floodwaters and huge seas.
After signing with Ozone and getting his hands on some of their gear, Andy Yates was there and ready to meet the storm head on.
Day 1 had arguably the most wind to hit the coast in over a decade. Police and SES workers were also on scene investigating a potential missing person report after an individual was seen being sucked out by the raging tide. This turned out to be a false alarm after the individual reportedly managed to swim to safety without informing authorities.
Day 2 had significantly less wind than day 1, but with huge and chaotic seas over 6m and only a 6 second period.
