Our beaches are being swept away

Here in Queensland, we have some of the best beaches in the world:

The weather reporters are warning us to expect another severe weather system. The last one was only 4 weeks ago and this is how it has left our beaches:

Those are pictures I took last weekend at the Sunshine Coast. The sides that look like cliffs used to be the top of the beach. Those exposed rocks used to be buried deep under the sand.

Who knows what is going to be left after this weather system… I hope it is not as bad as they think it will be.
