Severe storms smash through region
THE Granite Belt was smashed by a powerful rainstorm late yesterday afternoon with 35mm of rain recorded at upper Quart Pot Creek.
Not only did we see heavy rainfall, golf ball sized hail was also reported near Applethorpe.
The 77km/h winds passed through the Darling Downs and Scenic Rim before making its way to Brisbane and Moreton Bay just after 10pm.
Applethorpe recorded 23mm of rainfall, while north Dalveen recorded 35mm and Killarney 59mm.
More storms are expected for south east Queensland in the coming days - a welcome change for firefighters who have been battling several blazes across the state.
