Australia’s Sunshine and Gold coasts were hit so hard by the foam that residents and tourists were asked to cancel all non-essential travel.

Yahoo News reported that:

“Tourists, residents and emergency services were left bemused by the huge swathes of foam which were whipped up by high winds and then thrown onto land in eastern Australia.”

According to the Griffith University Centre for Coastal Management, the sea foam was formed when powerful waves forced air into the water.

It was reported that the foam reached three metres high at its peak!

A YouTube video by Mick Bell shows a car unexpectedly drive out from the sea foam and almost nearly hit two some police officers.
