AUSTRALIA – Life in the Land Down Under is full of storms and floods and thunder.

When Tropical Cyclone Oswald blew through Australia, it brought heavy rains and floods that have killed at least four people and forced thousands of residents to flee towns along the east coast.

Even inland, the floods have covered farms and stranded animals.

But the high winds and waves created a different condition, sea foam that turned the beach at Port Macquarie into something resembling a giant bubble bath.

Even though some swimmers claimed they don’t like the foaming, it didn’t stop people from running into, and out of, the sudsy surf. But it’s not all fun and games.

Like when a car seemed to suddenly appear. The dirty water from the swollen nearby river turned the wild ocean into a putrid shade of brown.

Meanwhile, Australians will try to stay out of harm’s way, and not get pulled under in the land down under.
