Storm across wa south will pack a punch bom says one.
A massive tornado with wind speeds of 145 kilometres per hour has rumbled across central and south east Queensland in the early hours of Saturday morning.
Rural residents and residents of south eastern and eastern Queensland were sent out into the night to check for damage after the storm rolled through.
A witness told 7.30 the storm hit at the same time as a tropical cyclone formed.
“That was the first moment I he바카라ard the sirens go off so I thought maybe it was the sirens that were popping up but then when you hear the sirens go off it’s like a second wave. It was a huge storm,” John Wilson told 7.30.
The Queensland Civil Defence Service said it was unable to confirm any deaths or serious injuries due to the tornado, which ripped a 3m by 5m footprint through Queensland’s north eastern and south southern suburbs.
An early warning system for tropical cyclones is being launched this weekend.
Forecasters believe the damage from the storm will slow down on Sunday morning and the next few days, but the weather system could pose a danger to other areas on Tuesday.
