Also devastating to see that fruit growers in the kumbia district have had there trees damaged/destroyed for the second time in less than 12 months (first was the boxing day last year storm). Absolutely heartbreaking for them. You'd think that 2 damaging supercells over exactly the same area 9 months apart from each other would be unusual. I love a good storm but they seem to be getting more and more severe up this way and I never want to see anything like what happened today over my place. Hopefully I never will and this isn't a sign of things to come...

Anyway enough rambling from me and the good news is we've had 10mm of non-severe rain this arvo which is fantastic stuff for the tanks and gardens.

Watching the cell south-west of Gayndah. If it stays clear in front it could build strongly much like the others and put Childers and Bundaberg in the firing line. Starting to look like a lot of clutter though so that might be all for the supercells in WBB today.

50 to 60mm would be good. The dangerous thing is that everytime Kingaroy is under a warning, nothing happens apart from a bit of rain and that's how people get complacent.

Man, did we get Smashed! Supercell storm, massive rain, wind, hail. Filled our front dam in 1/2 hour! Everyone is ok thank goodness just trees down everywhere. Thank god I was home as our dogs little shed is gone 😢 she would have been too if I wasnít here! The noise on the roof was beyond terrifying, the hail is in 4 foot drifts against our sheds, noise on the roof was unbelievable. Nearly 6 hours later there is still hail against the sheds. I think we got a few bruised bums in the paddock but nothing worse thank god. Lost our clothesline and a few solar lights lol but a bit of good fortune saved our large shed ie: a car was parked in front of the big doors and was the only reason they didnít blow in! We measured 48mm at the back, I reckon closer to 80mm as rain wasnít just horizontal it was going up I swear. Front gauge was kind of not working lol. Had 3 little storms rock over since.

Good to see people get some good rain apart from the storm damage.I have had the grand total of 2mm for the event so far and I can't really see where we will get much more from,over the next few days.Maybe a few stray showers.Most of the good stuff will still fall nth of the sunshine coast for the next 3 days.

After all the frustrations and misses Mega will never complain about storms in WBB again after today lol!


Still doesn't come close to 2004's storm but it was still cool. Plenty of wind and the hail not quite as big as golf balls. And one day of severe storms through the district doesn't make up for the countless summer 'storm' days where nothing happens through this region. poke

Anyway, who's seen the latest EC? Deep trough / ECL anyone?

After what has been an interesting week of storms, I was actually about to mention the fact that an East coast low is looking quite a possibility this weekend off the Fraser/Sunshine coast. At the moment models are painting 50-200mm of rain from Bundaberg all the way down to the border with areas north of about Brisbane being hardest hit. Defiantly something to watch!

The recent EC run is probably the best I've seen so far. Troughing with a little ECL spawning in Moreton Bay and decaying south inland. Most of coastal SEQ looking at 150+ from that.

Some further activity approaching the southwestern parts of SEQ atm after having just past Warwick, etc.

Also for anyone who isn't aware yet:

Mt Stapylton experienced a complex electrical fault on Tuesday (9 October) which was isolated and temporarily repaired on Wednesday (10 October). The faulty power supply will be replaced on Friday (12 October). A short outage of one hour is expected while these works are undertaken.

That may happen in larger towns/cities but in Kingaroy, we're small enough that everyone knows someone who has been affected by damage with any storm event I have seen in the past few years.
I don't really see any complacency in that way.
what I do see however is the 'throw away society' mentality.
That's the one where they say "Oh it's OK it's insured anyway." So they are less likely to worry about moving cars to safety. Less likely to worry about things being blown away etc.
WHat they forget about it the damage/harm caused, probably to other people down the road that could have easily been avoided.

Ah well let's see what the morning brings I guess.
