The worst hit areas included Logan City and Brisbane, with power cut to 58,000 and 30,000 properties respectively.

The man was said to be conscious and breathing, but suffering from leg pain, and had been taken to the Prince Charles Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

The cities of Logan and Brisbane were most affected, and authorities say a number of schools have been affected and some may be closed on today.

Between 20 and 40 millimetres fell across the region, with Brisbane receiving as little as 15 millimetres.

Wild winds did much of the damage, with gusts of 109km/h recorded at Redcliffe, 107km/h in the Redlands district, and 90km/h across Brisbane. With the Bureau's warning thresholds, anything greater than 90 kilometres per hour is considered damaging and we do see those in severe storms.




COAST residents are still without power following a freak storm that ripped through South-east Queensland overnight.

Fix crews were scrambling to restore power to about 57,000 properties that remained without power after destructive winds, gusting beyond 100km/h in some places, downed hundreds of power lines across the region.

Energex, a south-east Queensland electric power supplier, updated residents on the extent of the damage, tweeting 130,000 homes has been "affected" due to the powerful weather system.

Senior forecaster Michael Paech said storms tended to be quite "hit and miss" but they were expecting another serve this afternoon.
