King tides on Queensland coasts

A huge weather system is moving along the Queensland coast, causing king tides and flooding in low laying areas. Sandgate's Flinders Avenue, where we frequently go for fish and chips with David's parents has been affected by the high tides. Here are some pictures from the Courier Mail newspaper:  
Today would not have been a good day to go for fish and chips.

Children are not worried about the waves crashing over the footpaths  

Luckily it's summer and the temperatures are warm

This is turning into a water slide.

For children it's fun.

One good thing is that the temperatures have dropped, today and tomorrow to 28ºC (82.5 Deg.F)
