Residents through parts
of South-East Queensland and northern New South Wales are cleaning up this morning
after a weekend of wild weather. Two storms hit Brisbane,
with emergency crews kept busy again with around 350 calls
for help last night. Music lovers at the Harvest Festival
had to be evacuated, due to hail and heavy rain.

The sky looked pretty bad and then
the festival organiser came on and said, "Look, guys,
you've gotta move." While in Bateman's Bay
on the New South Wales South Coast an incredible waterspout was spotted
off the beach.

A man-hunt is underway after a body, believed to be
missing woman Sarah Cafferkey, was found in Melbourne's west. Homicide investigators raided
a house at Point Cook on the weekend and found the body inside. It is yet to be formally identified. Friends of Sarah's have taken
to her Facebook page, saying they are hoping and praying
it is not her. Sarah has been missing for 10 days. Israel is warning it's prepared to significantly

to 45%. Julia Gillard maintains a 9-point
lead over Tony Abbott in the preferred PM stakes
at 51% to 42%.

Schoolies are being warned

important message for globetrotters. But first, here's Kochie.

Thank you, Nat. Looking at the week of finance ahead, let's go straight to Savanth?Yes, Kochie, look, going to be all about the Reserve Bank this week. Tomorrow we this week. Tomorrow we get the board minutes from the last meeting where they didn't change interest rates but it will be interesting to see them flesh out the reasons. And also a speech by the Reserve Bank governor on the same day. Look towards the end of the week where the focus shifts to the US housing sector, housing and building permits will dominate attention. But what traders and investors will wait on, Wednesday and Thursday this week, all the manufacturing numbers from around the globe, especially the all-important numbers from China. There is There all-important numbers from China. There is signs in recent times the Chinese economy has bottomed out and it looks like it is picking up in momentum.

an impressive final round The world number five shot
a 5-under 67 to beat Englishman Ian Poulter

his 37.5% share in the club.

MARK ADLIB throw back to hosts.. ENDS

Just reached that point.He's got a bit on his plate at the moment. Wife, movies, personal life.Yes, let's go to today's weather. Grant, hello. You are at Manly?Yes, beautiful morning this morning over Sydney but you have seen in the news, the supercell thunderstorms have been hard at work wreaking havoc over Brisbane with serious rain and crickethop ball hail. A lot of that will deteriorate and slide away chis good news. In fact, 100 mL falling in Brisbane is significant for a number of reasons, more than the month of Brisbane in total and more than the city has received for the past 12 months. Brisbane does traditionally receive most of its rainfall in spring, summer because of the storms but it is good to see the nasty stuff is heading away.

Gee we got all your weather covered, no matter what side of the country you are in today.

Ahead this morning -
misleading food labels. in your shopping basket? But next - wild weather - Queensland and New South Wales
clean up after violent storms.

Sunrise brought to you by Redspot. Find out how Redspot
is positively different to the big rental car companies. Go with the underdog and save. Clean-up efforts are underway
in Queensland and New South Wales this morning

following more severe storms. South-East Queensland
was again hit overnight by hail, heavy rain
and damaging wind gusts. Parts of New South Wales
have also been affected. A storm super cell destroyed homes
in the state's north. While further south,
a tornado formed over the ocean, creating an incredible water spout
off the coast of Long Beach. Joining me now is Sunrise
correspondent Michelle Tapper in Brisbane and New South Wales SES Commissioner
Murray Kear. Good morning. Michelle, how much damage
have these storms caused?

Well, the damage has been pretty patchy. Kind of like the storms themselves. So, some suburbs have been hit hard and others, neighbouring suburbs, have been missed completely. We had another huge hail storm across the western suburbs last night. The Sunshine Coast copped a lot of rain, Ipswich copped a hail storm. Most of the copped a hail storm. Most of damage is fallen trees that have fallen into cars and roof roofs and houses. There is calls for people to the SES needing help with tarps etc. the SES needing help with tarps etc..What is the forecast today? More expected?Fortunately, it is a very clear morning in Brisbane today. We are expected to have scattered showers throughout the day but temperatures will reach 30, 31 degrees and it should be clear until about thursz so that is good news.A bit of crit kmp of the weather bureau about lack of warnings br the -- criticism of lack of warning?We had a huge storm on Thursday, very violent and intense but it was over within an hour and the Weather Bureau didn't issue warnings until five minutes after the storm. The Brisbane City Council didn't issue their warnings until eight hours later and sent out 65,000 text messages.When there is stories about it though on Friday night? The storms were coming.Yeah, in fact, we had it as the lead news on Seven News, the lead story on Friday night but I think people were caught off guard by the intensity. I was at home and my windows were flying open because the winds gusts were up to 90km/h and one of my neighbour's windows blew out bite intensesy. After what we went through last year, people are getting accustomed to receiving the SMS test messages warning them but the Weather Bureau said the storms increased so rapidly, they weren't aware how violent it was until it violent it was until it was too late.The moral of the story, watch Seven News.I was about to say the same things. Murray in New South Wales, which particular areas of the state copped the most damage there? Yes, good morning. The far north coast of New South Wales, Woodburn is one of the major towns affected. 155 calls for assistance in that part of New South Wales with 31 homes damaged in the Woodburn area itself. Five of those quite extensively.Murray, are there any other areas of the state that need to remain alert?We are not expecting more today. In fact, it is expecting more today. In fact, it expecting more today. In fact, quiet in most o parts of the states. We have completed 8 aeblg% of the calls we received. Again today, SES crews in the far north of New South Wales completing the work and looking at a possible front coming through about Wednesday, Thursday. So a couple of days to tidy up and await the weather pattern. Some of pictures were rermarkable of? Storm cells, like a dornado.

Making news this morning -
the great fuel heist. The 'Daily Telegraph' reports
a group of tanker drivers has been busted
in a $1 million petrol scam. Police allege they've been stealing
fuel from Caltex Woolworths and selling it to rival servos
for just 50 cents a litre. The truckies got away
it for more than a year by allegedly disabling
their GPS units, faking paperwork and siphoning fuel
meant for Woolies. But one forgot to turn off
his truck's tracking device, which raised suspicions. He'd made more than $100,000
from stealing and re-selling fuel and spent most of it
on a prostitute.

What was his name? Joking! Joking. Sorry? Spent It all on a prostcute. Obviously a classy one. He'll spend the next three years
in jail. Two other drivers will face court
in January for their involvement. One has already pleaded guilty.

I was hoping that would turn into a Robin Hood story.No.

Schoolies are also making headlines for posting photos of their
out-of-control celebrations online. Pictures uploaded to
photo-sharing sites like Instagram show teens involved drinking,
vomiting, passing out and flashing. the job prospects of those posting
the photos could be jeopardised with employers checking the social
media sites of potential workers.

Who's holding her hair?Exactly. So much for her friends.It is not a laughing matter.That's not funny, Beretts was.Yes, shocking.

But is the behaviour of schoolies
getting worse? Or does the internet just mean
it's easier to show the worst?

Are they doing anything different to what you were doing?No, we were pretty wild when we went through that phase Bert no-one was posting it anywhere. I do know of a wom... it anywhere. I do know of a wom.... A personA woman you happen going to say?A person who did not hire a couple of people, in the media industry, because of what they found on their Facebook.They checked the Facebook of all the candidates?Yep, what they were sag on there and put on there, affected their job prospects. It was a reality.Hardly to think that school as is worth it. Don't post photos. Just don't post photos. OK, you have been warned, everyone.

A couple of Nielsen opinion polls
making news this morning. The first shows 95% support for the royal commission
into the sexual abuse of children. The second shows little change for
the Government and the Opposition. Julia Gillard still
leads Tony Abbott by nine points But the Coalition still holds
an election-winning lead over Labor, 53% to 47%, two-party preferred.

Need a new set of wheels? This could be what you are after.

And the Wiggles' Big Red Car
is up for sale. They've decided to sell
their prized Volkswagen Beetle by auction on eBay for 10 days

Here's Nat with the news. Good morning. Police in Melbourne are yet
to formally identify a body, believed to be missing woman
Sarah Cafferkey. The body was found inside a home
in Melbourne's west on the weekend. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells
joins me now. Good morning, Nick. What is the latest
in the police investigation?

Whole, police are playing their cards very close to their chest on this one, so far. They executed a search warrant at this house on Saturday night. As you mentioned, found the remains of a woman. That identification is yet to happen so the house remains under police guard. One of the things that they surely will be looking into here is her Facebook page, where she is reportedly been subject to abuse and threats. They are, as yet, refusing to confirm any lines of investigation. Clearly, it is something that they will be looking into. So that house remains under guard today. We still await confirmation that this is the body of Sarah Cafferkey that they found in this house.Thank You.

for some calmer weather conditions
today after two storms
lashed the city yesterday. Lightning, heavy rain,
hail and damaging winds hit parts of the south-east. Just came over in, like,
five minutes. Heaps of rain and now we're just
left to clean up.

Just big bolts of thunder.

Parts of New South Wales also
experienced some wild weather Israel says it's prepared to
significantly expand its operation in the Gaza Strip. The body count continues to rise and buildings belonging to media are
being targeted for the first time. Seven News correspondent
Adrian Brown is in Tel Aviv. Adrian, what's the latest?

Another bloody day in Gaza today. 11 deaths, all believed to be ebams of the same family, four children and four women. The relentless pounding continues to go on. Israel says it so far fired more than 1,000, sorry, it has attacked more than 1,000 targets in Gaza. For its part, Hamas fired more than 100 rockets into Israel today but most were intercepted by its Iron Dome Defence system which is proving a game-changer here. In the in the south of the country, near Gaza, we saw a continuous flow of traffic heading to the border, there were armored personal carriers and coachloads of reservists and transcripts heading towards the border. So a real sense that military action is possibly imminent. Tonight, the Israeli Prime Minister has said, as you pointed out in your introduction, that Israel reserves the right to expand this campaign against the militants. The head of the army has also been speaking to reservists. He said that fighting in urban areas was often difficult but they should not look backwards and they should keep going forwards. Another hint, another sign, that this war is moving to a sign, that this war is moving to dangerous new phase.Thank you, we will get more when we cross to you later.

Prime Minister Julia Gillard
is still the preferred person to lead the country - according to
the latest opinion polls. Ms Gillard maintains
a 9-point lead over Tony Abbott in the preferred PM stakes
at 51% to 42%. But the Opposition would win
the next election - leading 53% to 47%
two-party preferred. Labor's primary vote
remains steady at 34% while the Coalition's is up slightly
to 45%. In finance news:

The Dow finished up 46 points over the weekend. European markets were down as tap tap Finance Ministers still argue and will be meeting again this week on further bailout money to Greece.

Time for sport.

Mike Hussey denies Australia has
the upper hand over South Africa after finishing strongly
in the first test at the Gabba. Both sides will hit the nets
in Adelaide today as they get set for Thursday's
start of the second test. I don't really like to think
we take any momentum coming out of Brisbane either. I think we start 0-0 again. Shane Watson may be given
until Wednesday to prove he's overcome
a calf injury.

Adam Scott says he had to put
this year's British Open collapse out of his mind to win the Australian Masters
at Kingston Heath yesterday. The world number five beat
Englishman Ian Poulter by four shots to claim his first gold jacket.

Jamie Whincup is refusing to celebrate his fourth
V8 Supercars championship despite moving further ahead after finishing third in race 28
of the season at Winton. Title rival Mark Winterbottom has
almost no chance of catching him at the season-ending Sydney 500.

Great to see the first bloke, Tim Mathieson, presenting the trophies. Lee loves his V8s.He does!Let's check in with Grant at Manly with your weather today. Beautiful there is.Beretts, the sunshines on the chiseled jaw in the morning. It is like a warm hug from Beretts.Yes, a slap on the cheek?Yes, it is. A gorgeous welcome to new week, everybody. That's what it is. I like to attack the jobs early in the week, get stuck into the nitty-gritty and push hard, get it out of the way early. As you can see. It is a focus and determination, Beretts, I'm sure you don't quite understand. An intensity that is unparalleled. Hey, check this out. A cheeky little surf before work starts, just trying to hang on to the last remnants of a weekend, catch the blue sky before the showers fall over Sydney. It will warm to a warmer day. But our thoughts are with Queensland with a wild weekend with the supercells wreaking havoc. 100 mLs of rain dumped on the city and places like Boonah, cricketball sized hail. So that is more rain than the city has receive in the last four months, so big numbers. Traditionally, Brisbane does get a lot of rain this time of year but not that extend. The storm activity that has been persisting will slide away and deteriorate. So it will be more the central coast of Queensland will be getting a bit of rain today but nothing really significant. Let's look at the forecast though for the rest of the country.

A confronting new ad
has hit our TV screens urging Aussies to take more care
when travelling overseas. The commercial features
Erin Langworthy. She's the 22-year-old
who survived a 111 metre fall into the Zambezi River
last December. The horrifying moment
was all caught on camera. I was in Zambia,
on holiday with a friend. We were up for an adventure
and a bungee jump seemed like fun. We thought it was safe. I never expected the bungee
to break. (PEOPLE GASP) It went black straightaway and I felt like I'd been slapped
all over. They had to airlift me to a hospital
in South Africa. Luckily, I'd registered my trip
with Smartraveller and had full travel insurance
to pay for it. If you're going overseas, make sure
you go to Smartraveller first. VOICEOVER: Smartraveller.gov.au.
Every traveller, every trip. And Erin Langworthy joins us now. Firstly, Erin, it's nearly been
a year since your accident.

That looks horrifying on film. What Oz it like in real life?I have seen the video a few times. You don't process it until I was sitting in hospital after and tried to work out what had gone wrong.You did the right thing? You registered with Smarttraveller and it made it so much easier. Tell us the process. Before going away, I was heading to Egypt, I was aware of the political situation there and thought it was a good idea for the Australian Government to know where I was. After the accident, I was contacted in hospital by the Australian consulate to see if I needed help. Did they help you.I had taken out travel insurance before I left, they stepped in there and fantastic, helped me out.A timely warning. I have kids who are mad backpackers. I always say, " always say, "Register." And they say, " say, "Sad, you're -- dad, you're worrying too much."You don't know what can go wrong. 104 people had bungee jumped on the day. The smallest thing goes wrong.It is a timely warning, the year 12 students finished, uni about to go on holidays. This is the season where everyone goes backpacking. Why did you get involved?It is an important when younger Australians going overseas don't think about taking out a travel policy. It is easier to register online with an iPhone. Everyone has got one these days so it should be convenient.Good on you for coming in and being associated with a campaign like that. It is an important question. Are you going Benji jumping again?Good question, not allowed to while my mother is around. I will reassess after that. You have got a very sensible mother. Always listen to your mother.Yes, go, mum.

The next time you grab
an item off the supermarket shelf make sure you take a moment
to study the packet properly. The pictures
that are splashed on the box may not accurately reflect
what's inside. Sunrise nutritionist Susie Burrell
joins us to explain. Susie, you've got
a couple of examples of how labels may be
confusing for us. Can you talk us through these?

Well, one of the key ing thes is because it looks healthy or claims to be fruit based or have certain ingredients isn't the case. When you look at cordial or fruit drinks, portrayed as being a fruit based with razz Barry flavour or Kiwi flavour, it says flavour, not the ingredient. When youskin the listing of ingredients there can be no fruit in there. The perception is that it is quite healthy for you.Even though they have a photo of an apple and a Kiwi on the cordial, it is not in there?It can just say flavoured. If you look closely t may say Kiwi flavoured cordial. The same with a fruit bar. If you look at them they can say 30% fruit fill wg the children's snack bars and children's snack bars and when you take a closer look, compared to the thickners and other fillers. We put up a picture that is

As a rule of thumb you want as few ingredients as possible. The Ktwists. So when, as a rule of thumb, the labels are so confusing. You can spend so much time in there. Who has time.Exactly, that example of a plane cracker, the fewer ingredients the better. You know what you are getting. That one is just rye in a biscuit. If the sugar and fat is listed first, they are listed in order of highest proportion. If you have a small percentage of what you are looking for, whether it is cheese or the whole-grain

.You telling me the chicken in a biscuit have no chicken amYes, the rice crackers, the flavoured biscuits, when you look closely it has none of that ingredient. Only a flavour that is like it. With fruit-based products, for children coming into the holiday season, the cordial and softdrinks, it is colours and flavours. Even if they are natural, doesn't mean they are healthy, it is still sugar.The natural lobbies are they better?I would argue no, they are still sugar and no nutritional value. They will never be a good choice. The cheese snacks, the nutritional value is minuscule. The MSG, called MS minuscule. The MSG, called MS 1, a flavour enhancer. If you don't recognise the ingredients on a panel, it is a good clue it is highly processed.But the word natural, it is why they get people in. Just before you go, there are calls to ban the words fat and diet when discussing childhood obesity. Can it be harmful or do we need to get real?Using a negative connotation for behavioural change for anyone is not a good idea. The word diet, means a short-term approach and fat is a negative thing for young children. But be do have a significant obesity problem with our children. One in four children have a weight issue. It is important not to use negative words to describe it but it is important parents are monitoring a child's growth. If you are concerned about your child, put the tape measure around the belly button, if that measurement is greater than, 3 times of their height, there is cause for concern. So rather than look at being labelling kids as overweight, concentrate on healthy foods in the home and getting them more active so it is important to monitor their growth. Because a high proportion of children have weight issues.Letser rr not be in denial. Here is Mel. Thanks, Nat.

It's alleged several tanker drivers
were selling petrol destined for Caltex Woolworths
garages to rival service stations. For more we're joined by Sunrise
correspondent Edwina Bartholomew. Eddy, what more can you tell us
about how this worked.

The tanker drivers were allege ledgedly picking up their loads, delivered to Caltex Woolworths service stations but on the way they were dropping off some of it were dropping off some of it at the rival stations and onselling it for 50 cents a litre. The court in Parramatta has heard the scam went on for a year. The truckies allegedly disabled the GPS so they couldn't be tracked and fid ld with their paperwork. One truckie costual Woolworths $ Woolworths $300,000 and they say it cost the company $ cost the company $1 million in total.How was it uncovered?Well, they didn't realise they didn't realise that Woolworths, quite clever, had monitoring systems in the tanks which noticed a discrepancy between what was ordered and what was delivered. One of the truck drivers forgot to disable his GPS. 41-year-old mark Andrew Reynolds. He is alleged to have netted $ netted $116 thousand from the scam, most of which he spent on a prostitute. Police tapped his phone to track him down. Police say thee is the mastermind but he has been sentenced to three years' jail. Thank you for the update.

Showbiz editor Nelson Aspen
is in New York. Nelson, Justin Bieber
and Selena Gomez have gone out to dinner together but it doesn't look like
they've patched things up just yet?

I don't know if you guys remember how awful dating was? But I can tell you dating is awful. I can't imagine what it would be like to be their age, that famous and try and date. But date they try to do. According to TMZ, they are trying to work things out. They went separately and met at a Japanese restaurant but apparently 10 minutes into the meal they got in to some kind of argument, Justin left, salina left. He followed her back to her house, and the agony, denied access. She wouldn't let him in. I guess they are having trouble trying to work things out.Meanwhile, Selena has been hanging out with Taylor Swift. She is a good influence but is she helping to write a break-up song? Yes, but the list she has been linked with, Harry Styles, coner Kennedy, she is a good girl but she has been linked to see many guys. She tells them she won't write about them when they break up but she does anyway.They all write up songs. She is a good girl with lots of friends.And never, ever, ever, getting back together.Yes!Such a talented man on the desk. Thank you, Nelson. You should have sung that, Beretts.

Brisbane hit
by another wave of storms drenching streets,
turning yards into icerinks and bringing down more trees. We're live to the clean-up. Police find human remains as they search
for a missing Melbourne woman. Israel and Hamas

to all-out war. The Wiggles' famous car
goes on the market. We'll explain how you could own it. Chris Martin completely
won me over - so humble. What is about the English? I plan to do the opposite then.
Please don't. Our Bond girl, Mel, goes one-on-one
with 007, Daniel Craig. ('JAMES BOND' THEME MUSIC PLAYS)

(SONG) # Reach out for the sunrise # Reach out for the sunrise. # Right across Australia,
this is Sunrise on Seven. From Brekky Central,
Kochie and Mel. Hello again. Mel with Daniel Craig
is coming up shortly. As you can see from Mel-cam,
there was a lot of smiling going on. Also coming up, health insurance
premiums set to rise, again.

Big hair.Daniel Craig.She's got a power dress on.OK, moving on.Looks like a shackle bangle, which is a way of saying, " way of saying, "I'm yours." way of saying, "I'm yours.".No mention of the kids there. What children?Sorry, my children weren't there. , moving on.

So let's continue now,
with Nat and the news. It's been a wild weekend of weather
through Queensland and parts of New South Wales with lightning, heavy rain
and damaging winds. As some Brisbane residents
began to clean up, another storm blew in last night,
keeping emergency crews busy.

Brisbane's CBD was hit by 16 millimetres in just half an hour. Some northern suburbs pommeled by more than 40 millimetres. 8,000 homes lost power in the Moreton Bay region. This low hit New South Wales yesterday, whipping up this sight in Bateman bay. A water spout showing its might. A sign, experts say, of what is to come.Heading right into the prime part of the storm, especially for the northern eastern parts of New South Wales.The village of Woodburn was left sorting through ruins after a severe storm rattled the residents.Got everyone into the lounge room, in a corner and it was like ten trains coming through the house. It was unbelievable.Winds topping 100km/h ripped roofs off houses and brought down powerlines. Electricity is being restored to customers today after around 5,000 were cut off. Emergency crews were left flat out. I have been in this position, as volunteer controller, for 30 years. In this particular area, Woodburn, it is the worst devastation I have seen in that time.

had to be evacuated last night
because of the hail. the weather forced some bands
off the stage. We were waiting for Ben Folds
to come on and then all of a sudden someone
came onstage and was like,
"Guys, serious. "We need to start moving because
there's a big hailstorm coming in." The music fans were eventually
let back in when the conditions eased. Police will resume a search
of Botany Bay south of Sydney this morning

after a diver failed
to return to shore. Three men went diving
near Bare Island yesterday morning. Two of them returned a short time
after going out in the water but a 27-year-old man
didn't come in. The diver's equipment
has been found. The diving unit, surf lifesavers
and PolAir will all join in the search today. Friends of a missing Victorian woman are clinging to hope
she's still alive after the discovery of a body at Point Cook
in Melbourne's south-west. 22-year-old Sarah Cafferkey was last
seen at her home in Bacchus Marsh, 10 days ago.

We hope as a result
of the post-mortem examination and our investigations
over the next few days that more information
will come to light. Homicide detectives took over
the investigation when it emerged that a man had left
threats on her Facebook page. Israel is under increasing pressure
to reach a ceasefire as it continues its campaign
of air strikes in the Gaza Strip. The body count has risen again and the US is still backing
Israel's action. We are fully supportive
of Israel's right to defend itself Britain's Foreign Secretary says
international support could waver if a threatened ground invasion
of the conflict zone goes ahead. The latest Nielsen poll shows the Coalition would still gain power
if an election were held today. The Opposition's
two-party preferred vote has jumped for the first time
in two months, to 53%. Recent gains in Labor's primary vote
may have stalled - it's remained steady at 34%
since mid September. Julia Gillard has maintained
her lead as preferred PM over Tony Abbott.

Coming up on Sunrise -
a classic, trashed. # I can't get no

# Satisfaction

# 'Cause I try # I can't get no # When I'm drivin' in my car...#

Just why Kochie, Mel
and I took on the Stones. But first, here's a man who can
always get plenty of satisfaction

Can we make it clear from the outset it was if charity. The Alannah and Madeleine Foundation in Melbourne. If that doesn't raise money, nothing will.Did they get a lot of money after we left the stage? Kochie, take it away quickly.They raised a lot of money as people paid for us to shut up! Finance

European markets were smashed as the eurozone went back into recession.

Over the weekend, more American newspapers went broke. You want to know why? This sort of sums it up. The dark-blue and light-blue graph is revenue for US newspapers and magazines. The red bit is advertising revenue from Google. Look at

since 2004, Google advertising has now outstripped total American newspaper and magazine advertising revenue. That's why old print media is finding it so tough. Just sums it up. Time for sport with pwrepts.

Jamie Whincup is refusing
to celebrate his fourth V8 Supercar championship

despite holding an unbeatable lead
after the weekend's races at Winton. The championship leader
finished third in yesterday's 28th race
of the year despite a pit lane penalty. There's still an opportunity
to lose points in Sydney so we're just going to bottle it all Mark Winterbottom has almost
no chance of catching Whincup at the season-ending Sydney 500.

Mark Webber's US Formula One
Grand Prix has come to an end on lap 18. The Aussie's Red Bull car
suffered a mechanical failure, forcing him to pull out of the race. Webber's team-mate
Sebastian Vettel leads. The South Sydney Rabbitohs
will hold a media conference later this morning to confirm Russell Crowe is selling
his 37.5% share in the club.

Says he is still passionate but cannot go on as far as being a director of the club. There you go. OK.Let's check with Grant. He's got the tor cast for us today. There -- forecast.There is a lot happening in the ocean too, Mel. This is a great east coast tradition, the Pink Caps are out there a the moment, they go out every day, 7am, up to 90 or so people taking a swim in the morning, making the most of the sunshine, counting down the days to summer. It is pretty sweet. There are about 90 people in the ocean just chatting away. It just chatting away. It is hard to imagine things will change here in Sydney. For the coast of New South Wales, scattered showers, 5 mLs, 10 to 15 for Victoria and the central coast of Queensland, copping the same amount, 10 to 15. But good to see instorm super cells that affected Queensland will ease. Which is good news, considering it was producing cricket-ball size hail.

Residents in Queensland
and New South Wales are mopping up this morning after
being hit by more heavy storms. South-East Queensland
was again struck overnight by hail and heavy rain. Wild weather at the weekend also
affected parts of New South Wales with dozens of houses damaged
in the state's north. While on the south coast, the storm cells brought hail
and a spectacular water spout off Long Beach.

Take a look at this. There you go. That's frightening, isn't it?

Joining me now is Sunrise
correspondent Michelle Tapper, New South Wales SES commissioner
Murray Kear

Well, most of the damage has been caused by trees falling into homes, on to cars, and of course, on to powerlines. A lot were cleared up yesterday and mulched but then we were hit with another storm last night around 6:00. So more trees down, 18,000 homes and businesses have been without power. The SES have received more than 350 calls from residents with leaking trees and roof damage and needing help with tarps. So quite a bit of damage throughout the south-east, particularly from the huge hailstones that were falling, damage to windows and and homes and cars. There has been criticism of the Weather Bureaus for the lack of warnings, even though Seven News on Friday night said prepare for storms over the weekend?Yes, that's right. I think it is largely related to the fact we had the huge storms early last year monopoly so a lot of people are still recovering from that. Even know we knew storm were coming, the intensity and the violence of the storms call people off guard. The Weather Bureau didn't send out their SMS warnings until 20 minutes after it was done. We had winds gusts up to 100km/h and hailstones of up to 6 centimetres. It was violent and intense. People are expecting SMS Warnocks. Even the Brisbane City Council's SMS alerts didn't go For Keeps up to eight hours, which is not good enough, Kochie.Murray, is the dangerous over?Yes, good morning, it is over for the moment. Another front possibly coming through later in the week. But at the tite of this storm, the SES New South Wales responded to ubover wn55 calls for assistance. 83% of the calls have been completed, precominantly in the Woodburn area, the town hardest hit. The remaining jobs are the larger roof jobs. About 31 properties in that area are damaged. Many of those are extensively.OK, let's go toTom Saunders at the Weather Channel. Are all the storms over for the time being?Kochie, good morning. Yes, for most areas. North-east New South Wales, dry weather has returned today. For South-East Queensland, a dry day for most areas but for the coastal fringe of coastal fringe of South-East Queensland, the chance of isolated thunderstorms this afternoon. It would include coastal suburbs. But it key point, thunderstorms in south-east today will not be as severe or widespread as the weekend. For the eastern parts of Queensland north of Fraser Island there could be some severe storms around this afternoon.Amazing footage of the water spout off the New South Wales coast. What caused it? It is not a tornado, is st?It wasn't a tornado, it is a water spout. The difference is the area is rotating upwards. We had storms in south-east New South Wales as well but wind sheer near the surface leading to the rotation. At tornado, the rotation comes from the cloud and moves down. Typically, tornadovise greater wind and damage. Do they come ashore?Yes, occasion eel, occasionally they can cause winds up to 150, but this one, fortunately, did stay off the coast. Thank you all for your time.

Police investigating
the disappearance of a young Melbourne woman have uncovered human remains. Sarah Cafferkey was last seen by her
mother at her home on 9 November. Her car was discovered on Friday. Police say the remains
haven't been identified but a media statement has linked
the discovery to the case. Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells
is in the Point Cook Street where the remains were discovered. Nick, what are investigators saying?

(Sorry, we appear to have a few problems there with Nick's audio. We might check back with him in just a minute. Let's go to Nat in the meantime. Thank you, meantime. Thank you, Mel.

There's no sign of any easing
of the tensions in the Middle East with Israel and Hamas
on the brink of war. Israel is continuing air strikes
on Gaza with Hamas claiming
69 Palestinians have been killed in the past few days. The Israeli government says it's retaliating against months
of rocket attacks. Seven News correspondent
Adrian Brown is in Tel Aviv. Adrian, you've been
to the Gaza border. What did you see there?

Well, it was pity telling, Nat. We saw an almost continuous flow of military traffic heading in one direction, towards the crossing point, which is the main border crossing point between Israel and the Gaza Strip. We saw D 9 bulldozers, the giant earthmovinging pieces of equipment. We saw coach loads of reservists and conscripts, we saw a whole column of armored personnel carriers. Also, tanks on trailers. You have got a real sense that the land incursion that is so keenly anticipated may only be hours away. Earlier, the Prime Minister of Israel said that he believed that it was possible for his country to expand the military campaign against the militants in Gaza. Also, the head of the army addressed a gathering of reservists earlier. He said that they should be very careful when they fight in urban environments. They should look forward, and not look backwards. He wished them luck. So, pretty clear indications that the land incursion, this planned land incursion, may in fact, be imminent.On that, we are hearing this morning's Britain Foreign Secretary is warning Israel any ground invasion would cost it international sympathy. Would they care at all about that?I don't really think so, at the moment. If you speak to ordinary Israelies, their resolve is heartening. They are right behind their government on this. They say they are fed up with the rockets that have been fired into this country during the last few months. There has been a real upsurge. Hundreds of rockets have been fired into Israel from the Gaza been fired into Israel from the Strip. The feeling of ordinary people you speak to is that we have to tackle this now, otherwise it is going to get worse.OK, awful, awful time over there. Thank you for your update from Tel Aviv this morning. Here is Mel. Let's go back to Nick Etchells in Melbourne where police are investigating the disappearance of a young woman am. They have uncovered human remains. We will try again.Investigators are not saying much at all, Mel, which might be an indication they feel they have got plenty to go on. But what we know so far, Sarah Cafferkey disappeared 10 days ago, last seen by her mother who lives at Bacchus Marsh, about 10 or 20 kilometres west of the city. Her car was found at Maribrynong, 25 kilometres away from her house. Acting on a tipoff, police executed a search warrant and discovered a woman's remains. They have not yet been identified but it is linked to this case, according to the police investigators at this stage. One point of interest, she has reportedly been subject to abuse and threats on Facebook. Shortly before she disappeared. Now, police won't confirm they are investigating this but clearly, it is something they would look . Her bank accounts and telephone haven't been used at all in the past ten days. That is the situation as far as the investigation goes as far as we know of. The house is now under police guard. What we are awaiting is confirmation on the identity of the remains they found at this house, Mel.Alright, nick, can you tell us what might be the next step then in what might be the next step then in this investigation?Yes, the thing that is making this defendant is police -- difficult is police have playing their cards chose to their chest. The house in which they found the remains was occupied by two men. But neighbours are saying they had not seen movement at the house for over a week. Obviously, the men will be a central part of the investigation at this point. Police have made no arrests and they are not saying anything about these two men.Just awful, thank you, Nick, stay in touch and talk to you soon.

Despite some arrests
on the first weekend of schoolies, police say they're pleased
with how young people are behaving. Saturday night on the Gold Coast
saw a few fights and around 20 school leavers
taken into custody. Another eight were arrested
at Victor Harbor in South Australia for drugs and minor assaults. But the overwhelming feeling is it's been a safe start
to the celebrations.

Andy Gourley is the founder
of Red Frogs who are helping keep everyone
safe up on the Gold Coast. He joins us now. Andy, thanks for joining us. What's the latest after last night -
are they still behaving themselves?

Yes, I would say, just the most healthiest we've seen to a schoolies. Particularly after the first two nights. They are doing very, very well. We are pretty pleased.That's good, I suppose the impression is that it is out of control. Because so many pictures are being uploaded of fights and people having a little too much to drink. It can sort of exaggerate things, can't it?Yes, absolutely, mate. Most of the fights are toolies, or the hangers on who want to crash the parties. The schoolies themselves vbz really great. A lot of the safety messages are getting through in the high-school messages before they get here.That is very comforting for the parents of schoolies who are waiting nervously at home for them to come back. What are the messages you want to get across?Definitely not to take too much alcohol at schoolies. Go easy on the grog. Also, drink water. Alcohol dehydrates you. Drink water. Keep eating during the week. It is amazing if you don't do that you get run down and into trouble. Stay with your mates. That is a trend for us, we have seen a 200 increase call on the web site for homes.What do you do?A national 1300 number, you can call anywhere in Australia, if you are worried about walking home or got the old wobbly legs and don't know which way home is, Red Frogs will help you walk home and eating the Allen's red frogs helps too. Awesome, keep a watch out for us. Brilliant. They have got a car for the big red frogs.

Now, the Wiggles' Big Red Car
is up for sale. They've decided to sell
their prized Volkswagen Beetle by auction on eBay for 10 days

I want to share with you some, " some, "You heard the term nailed it? You nailed the spirit. Let's face it, your professional music career may be on hold but what you may be on hold but what you lack in musicality you made up for in spirit." A backhanded compliment.It is about what you give on stage ask you gave everything.

Here's Nat. Forensic police have worked
through the night after a body of a woman was
found at a house at Point Cook in Melbourne's south-west. Detectives are investigating whether it's missing
22-year-old Sarah Cafferkey. She was last seen at her home
in Bacchus Marsh 10 days ago. The Homicide Squad was called in after threats were left
on her Facebook page. The property, in a new estate,
is believed to be rented by two men. Residents through parts
of South-East Queensland and northern New South Wales are cleaning up this morning
after a weekend of wild weather. Two storms hit Brisbane,
with emergency crews kept busy again with around 350 calls
for help last night. Thunderstorms today
in South-East Queensland will not be as severe
or as widespread as what we saw on the weekend. While in Batemans Bay
on the New South Wales south coast, an incredible waterspout
was spotted off the beach. Israel is warning it's prepared to significantly
expand its Gaza operation as it continues its campaign
of air strikes in the region. The fifth day of conflict
has seen media buildings targeted. Barack Obama has reaffirmed
his support of the US ally. There's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles
raining down on its citizens from outside its borders. Britain's Foreign Secretary says a ground invasion of Gaza would cost A security guard has been stabbed
outside a Melbourne nightclub. The 23-year-old
was stabbed in the neck after an altercation with a man
on Swanston Street in the city. Other guards at the club managed
to detain him before police arrived. He was arrested
but later released, pending summons. The guard is recovering
in the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Severe weather may have dampened
the spirits of some schoolies revellers
over the weekend but police have continued
their high-visibility operation in Surfers Paradise overnight. Authorities are commending the overall behaviour
of school leavers, but they've still had
to break up brawls Too many fights yesterday night. Yeah, that's probably
the craziest thing. Social media streams
have been inundated with photos depicting the worst of the end
of high school celebrations. Adam Scott admits he had to put
this year's British Open collapse before playing
an impressive final round to claim the Australian Masters. The world number five shot
a 5-under 67 to beat Englishman Ian Poulter
by four shots. This is pretty sweet
to be in the gold jacket and hold this trophy which I've been
admiring since I was just a kid. It's Scott's first win of 2012. Australia and South Africa
will train in Adelaide for the first time today as the two sides get set for the
second test starting on Thursday. Shane Watson will be given
until later in the week to prove he's overcome
a calf injury. The South Sydney Rabbitohs will hold
a media conference this morning to confirm Russell Crowe is selling
his 37.5% share in the club.

Of course, still passionate about the Rabbitohs. Grant has your weather, down by the ocean at Manly. Before you get started, Shannon Extine, friend of ours, has won the Extine, friend of ours, has won world championships for ironman, the only pusen who has done that before is trefben hendy.What a great man. I have seen him at workb, that man is a fierce human being and one dedicated bloke as well. That is tough stuff, good to see he is flying the flag for us. Looking pretty blue over Sydney. That is going to change in just a couple of hours time. In fact, a southerly change coming up the coast will bring a few showers and cloudy activity but it is about the south-east corner of Queensland where a couple of severe storm cells wreaked havoc over the weekend. They were supposed to slide off the coast today and things and fine in those affect areas of far north New South Wales and Queensland but it hasn't quite happened but it hasn't quite happened so there is a chance of storms this storms this afternoon but nothing as severe the last couple of days. Like we had, hail the size of critic balls in Toowoomba and Boonah. And more thane in a couple of days than Brisbane has seen for the last four months. So could be a couple of storms but nothing as severe as it has been.

A trough is triggering thunderstorms in the Northern Territory
and Queensland, severe in South-East Queensland.

It has brought the storms in South-East Queensland and will hopefully be less severe this afternoon.

A low is bringing showers
to south-eastern New South Wales, eastern Victoria
and eastern Tasmania. A high is keeping
South Australia dry while directing warm easterly winds
into Western Australia. A trough in Western Australia
is causing storms inland.

Bit of a tease, Monday morning, kind of hoping if the best, see a lot of blue and go, will be a good week but it will all change.Thank you, see you soon.

Ahead on Sunrise - one of the most desirable women
in Australia - and the world - is single again. But next - "The best Bond ever". A humble Daniel Craig opens up about taking on one
of the world's biggest movie roles.

Good morning to all our friends
in Melbourne as we take a look through
the Jetstar Skycam. A gorgeous day
ahead for you - sunny with a top of 23.

Daniel Craig is the latest A-list
star to visit our shores. The British actor has walked
the red carpet at the Australian premiere
of 'Skyfall', the 23rd James Bond movie. I sat down with Daniel one-on-one and found a man incredibly humble
about his life-changing role, even with audiences saying
he's the "best 007 ever".

And Roger Moore.

007 reporting for duty.

Where the hell have you been? Enduring death. I only have one question: why not stay death. There is no shame in saying you have lost a step.

Third time's a charm
for Daniel Craig, 'Skyfall' is the most critically
acclaimed Bond of all and already a global box
office success. Take the bloody shot.

Bond in the beginning is described
as being too old, bit old fashioned, was that a deliberate ploy to bring
it back to the parallel that Bond is 50 years
