Waves Sweep Shipping Container Up Gold Coast Beach

All beaches on Australia’s Gold Coast and Stradbroke Island were closed on January 3 due to dangerous surf caused by severe weather conditions from ex-Tropical Cyclone Seth.

This video, taken by Isabella Dobozy, shows a shipping container being swept up the beach at Currumbin by the waves. The ABC said a crane was called in to remove the container.

The Bureau of Meteorology issued a severe weather warning for abnormally high tides and dangerous surf on Monday.
