Deadly storms have slammed into the Australian coastline bringing giant waves, cyclone-strength winds and torrential rain, killing three people.

The weather saw waves of up to five metres pounding much of the east coast, including Sydney, where a storm at Collaroy lashed a swimming pool so hard it fell into the sea.
