Choppy Seas Off Queensland Coast Set Boats Adrift as Cyclone Oma Passes

Cyclone Oma brought choppy conditions at sea on the Queensland coast on February 22, setting boats adrift at Victoria Point, according to a local volunteer rescue service.The Volunteer Marine Rescue team at Victoria Point, east of Brisbane, warned boaters they were “unable to assist unless there is imminent danger to human life as it is far too dangerous to jeopardise volunteers lives and wellbeing to save unsecured vessels.”Nine News reported that the cyclone was not expected to make landfall but was forecast to “re-intensify to a Category 2” cyclone and bring high winds and coastal flooding.This video shows a boat tilting over in the choppy water, as dark clouds loom overhead.
