East Queensland storms: more wild weather as 50000 without power

Tennis ball-sized hail rained down on unsuspecting cars and blanketed fields while winds of up to 100km  h smashed Brisbane

About 52 Coast properties are still without power, according to Energex spokesman Justin Coomber.

In Brisbane a young boy was taken to hospital after suffering an electric shock while showering when a lightning bolt hit the ground near his Ferny Grove home.

Gold Coast local Thomas Ireland captured a video of lightning repeatedly striking the Gold Coast's Q1 residential skyscraper, which resulted in plumes of what looked like smoke billowing from the top of the building.

Data posted on the Energex website revealed Kenilworth residents were hit the hardest by the storm with about 45 properties still without power.

In Brisbane, fans of United States band Paramore had to evacuate Brisbane's Riverstage venue before the show began, running for cover as a spectacular and unsafe light show unleashed.

"The storm was only brief but it was powerful and appears to have caused a lot of damage to homes and motor vehicles", Ms Clinton said. The crowds were housed in the QUT carpark next door before re-entry was organised once the worst of the storm had passed.

"We cycle in fresh crews".

"We will have between 140 to 200 crews working in the region today".

Trains were suspended in both directions on the Gold Coast, with further interruptions between Kingston and further south.

Workers managed to get power back on for 78,000 other properties, but Energex warned residents in storm-affected suburbs to be wary and assume any fallen lines were live and stay away.

RACQ said it had received 101 claims so far from last night's wild weather event. There are no storm warnings current for the region.

"It's very similar conditions for the south-east that are around today, very hot and there is some instability", Mr Paech said.
