Video: Australian town covered in foam


A town in Australia has been covered in foam after strong winds blew the surf off the sea and onto the shore.

Mooloolaba in Queensland was filled with foam which was as high as three metres in some places.

The freak weather is a result of the tropical storm cyclone Oswald which has caused flooding and chaos across the east coast of Australia.
