Storm damage closes Bell Street

STORM damage has prompted Ipswich police to close Bell Street to traffic because of an awning at risk of collapse on a footpath and street. 

There are power outages and power lines down in various areas, including Bundamba, Booval, Raceview, Karalee, Brassall, East Ipswich and Newtown.

Details are sketchy so far but more information on the Bell Street situation and other areas will be posted as it becomes available.
