Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce damaging winds, heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding and large hailstones over the next several hours.

This warning is for parts of the Central Highlands and Coalfields, Wide Bay and Burnett, Maranoa and Warrego, Darling Downs and Granite Belt and Southeast Coast districts.

Locations which may be affected include Warwick, Toowoomba, Dalby, Roma, Mitchell and Taroom.

Emergency Management Queensland advises that people should:

  •  Move your car under cover or away from trees.
  •  Secure loose outdoor items.
  •  Avoid driving, walking or riding through flood waters.
  •  Seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees.
  •  Avoid using the telephone during a thunderstorm.
  •  Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
  •  For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.

The next warning is due to be issued by 5:45 pm.

If severe thunderstorms develop in the Southeast Queensland area (east of Dalby from Rainbow Beach to Stanthorpe), a more detailed Severe Thunderstorm Warning will be issued to people in this area.
