There have been several bad storms around Brisbane and the Gold Coast recently but where we’re located north of Brisbane,we had ducked the worst of them. However, today the centre of rather bad one hit us pretty much head on. In the Rain Radar map below the black and dark red regions represent intense storm cells.
Strong gusty winds knocked down a tree across the road a little way from us. Fortunately, our place was unscathed but the whole neighbourhood was without power for several hours.
