Sea Foam Gives Town a Bubble Bath, Almost Kills Two Traffic Cops (VIDEO)

This is your street. This is your street on unchecked sea foam—any questions?

According to The Herald Sun, Cyclone Oswald caused the ocean near Brisbane, Australia, to become so choppy that parts of the coast were buried in nearly ten feet of the saltwater brew.

The coastal froth is formed during storms when powerful waves force air into the water and produce foam, according to the Griffith University Centre for Coastal Management.

The bubbles weren''t the only awful byproduct of the cyclone—more than 58,000 homes lost electricity over the weekend.
