Ului fails to impact here
WILD seas whipped up by Cyclone Ului have had little effect on the Cooloola Coast.
Despite large swells hitting Rainbow Beach on Saturday and Sunday, Rainbow Beach lifeguard Lleam Rees said there had been little erosion at Rainbow’s main beach.
Mr Rees had closed the beach over the weekend to protect swimmers from the unpredictable water conditions, but said the surf had died down on Monday.
“Things have settled down today (Monday).
“I have opened the beach and the DPI has started putting the shark nets back in,” Mr Rees said.
“It’s all getting back to normal.”
The expected rain to hit the region from the remnants of Ului didn’t eventuate, with only small falls recorded across the Gympie region during the weekend.
