An INSANE Look At The Repercussions Of Last Night's Storm

Severe storms have battered southeast Queensland, with large hail and savage winds damaging homes at Dayboro north of Brisbane.

At least one property in the Dayboro area lost its roof, and others also have roof damage, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services said.

About 1200 properties in that area will be without power for most of the day, as dozens of crews continue efforts to restore supply and bring in generators.

Energex says about 4000 properties were without power across the southeast at the height of the wild weather.

The worst of the storms hit on Sunday night, while a second line of storms swept across Brisbane about 3am (AEST) on Monday.

Footage taken in Dayboro and posted on social media shows just how fierce the winds were, with rain and hail flying horizontally, outdoor furniture tossed around, and trees and power lines brought down.

There have also been reports of localised flooding.

"That hampered some of our efforts there (in Dayboro) last night," Energex spokesman Danny Donald told ABC radio.

He says power is back on in the centre of Dayboro, but others might have to go without for most of the day.

Low cloud is blanketing the Brisbane CBD on Monday, with forecasters warning more storms could hit from late morning.
