High Tide Warning – Be Alert

Redland City Council is urging residents and visitors to be alert and take care along
coastal areas, especially on North Stradbroke Island, during the next few days due to
severe weather high tide warnings.

Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said a severe weather warning for abnormally high
tides had been issued by the Bureau of Meteorology and further updates and information
is available on their website at www.bom.gov.au or by calling 1300 659 219.

“The forecasted weather conditions could see water levels on the high tide exceed the
highest tide of the year,” Cr Williams said.

“Powerful surf and high tides may lead to strong currents, beach erosion and local
inundation of low lying foreshore areas.

“The warning advises the conditions will occur late morning high tide for the next few
days, peaking on Saturday.

“If you live in foreshore or low lying areas, by rivers, or near a creek, be prepared for some
localised flooding.

“North Stradbroke Island residents and visitors, especially beach area campers, should
be extra vigilant.”
