Clean up after storms continues
THE storm clean up continued for SES volunteers this morning following a late night assisting residents across the Ipswich region.
SES Ipswich area controller Arie van den Ende said crews attended more than 20 calls for assistance from people who had trees fall on their roof or who complained of roof and window damage as a result of rain and high-speed winds.
The band of storms which hit the south-east corner on Monday afternoon brought wind gusts of up to 80kmh.
Power was cut to 40,000 homes across the region, including in Pine Mountain, Rosewood and the Scenic Rim.
