Residents of Mooloolaba, a beachside Australian town, woke to an unexpected sight on Monday morning -- the beach and streets covered in up to 10 feet of foam.
The frothy white substance is a freaky side effect of Tropical Storm Oswald, which caused damage throughout Queensland. Turbulent waves forced pockets of air into the ocean water, producing the foam that blanketed the area.
Tourists and residents were enjoying the fluff, playing in it and taking lots of pictures. But they had to tread carefully. In a video posted to YouTube, police and onlookers were stunned to see a car emerge out of the foam like a sea monster rising from the deep.
