Australia: 5000 lightning strikes during storms



 

Five thousand lightning strikes danced across southeast Queensland skies overnight but the thunderstorms were not as severe or damaging as the weather bureau expected. The thunderstorms produced 5000 lightning strikes since 11pm (AEST) on Tuesday, with more than 16,000 homes losing power, electricity company Energex said.
The worst hit suburbs were in Brisbane's north and around Logan. Only 418 homes still waiting to be reconnected at 6am (AEST) on Wednesday, she said. More storm activity could be on the way for Brisbane, Ipswich, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast later in the evening, the Bureau of Meteorology warns. (SoTT)
