South East Queensland has been smashed by storms but the Bureau of Meteorology says the worst is over.

At the height of the storm thousands of homes were left without power.

Esk copped hailstones and a wild storm.

“They copped hail, and that is what is heading our way at the moment,” Nine weather presenter Luke Bradnam told Scott Emerson.

“We have seen hail up around the 5cm mark.

“It looks a massive band stretching from the Sunshine Coast right the way down to the Gold Coast, so all of us in the firing line.”

Press PLAY to hear his predictions and forecast

A Current Affairs’ Dan Nolan spoke to Scott from Mt Cootha.

“Honestly this storm looks apocalyptic from where I am standing, I have never seen the sky so dark up here on top of the mountain.”

 

Bernie, the publican at the Esk Club Hotel, crossed to Scott after the storm.

He said he had heard reports of hailstones.

“It rained heavy for about an hour but no hail.”

Leanne, who works at Blue Fin Fishing Club Inala, said there was a lot of rain and a little bit of hail and lightning.
