Re: Superstorm hits Australia's East Coast with 4000 lightning strikes in one hour in Brisbane
15 minutes ago from BOM:

SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WARNING - SOUTHEAST QUEENSLAND
for DAMAGING WIND and HEAVY RAINFALL

For people in the BRISBANE CITY, MORETON BAY, REDLAND CITY, North Stradbroke Island and parts of the GOLD COAST CITY, LOGAN CITY, IPSWICH CITY and SUNSHINE COAST Council Areas.

Issued at 9:57 pm Saturday, 17 November 2012.

The Bureau of Meteorology warns that, at 9:55 pm, severe thunderstorms were detected on weather radar near Brisbane CBD, Strathpine and Caboolture. These thunderstorms are moving towards the southeast. They are forecast to affect Beenleigh, Logan City, Cleveland and Redcliffe by 10:25 pm and southern Moreton Island, Tangalooma and northern Moreton Bay by 10:55 pm.

Damaging winds and heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding are likely.

I'm in Caboolture, the rain has been steady but the lightning and thunder has been nearly endless the last hour and a bit, and it's picking up again. Been a few thunder hits so loud it feels like a shockwave runs through the house

A weather alert was posted by the Bureau of Meteorology just minutes before rain smacked the east coast, leaving thousands of people without power.

Weatherzone reported more than 4000 lightning strikes within 80km of Brisbane in the space of one hour.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1306234


wtf man you are in America. I'm right in the middle of the storm that you refer to atm and a massive lightning strike just hit a tree outside my window just as I'm writing this lol. An my ears are ringing from it.

And I'm still not crying bout it on GLP until you mentioned it.

Take it from me it's not even that bad atm. I still have electricity even.

That's not to say the power won't go out soon. But so far it's okay.

Also this isn't HAARP.


For some reason aliens have started manipulating the weather. I have no idea why they have choosen this time to start doing this or why they are doing it.

But It's fucking anoyying.

Just cause we are waking up, doesn't mean they can go mental and have a fit and destroy everything we built.

I am pretty amased at how many neighbors are on this forum within 100klm of me - how cool. I am inland Ippy but don't want to say the town on here because it is just too small.

My tanks are full woohoo - it rained all night and lightning and thunder and heavy winds - its a beautiful morning - the grass is so green and everything looks clean.

We lost power for about 3mins but the thunder and lightening didn't stop ALL NIGHT.

Sun is shining at the moment and thunder still in the background but IMO expecting more of the same this arvo.

getting totally blasted, had to fight the wind to get the front door close, I knew it was coming but one second all was fine and then, like I said TOTALLY BLASTED.

I've lost count of the storms, thunder like bombs!

No damage nor hail here, so much rain the street started to flood but that went down as the rain eased.

Thunder still here - thats like 30hrs of constant thundering - feels like we are in the eye of the storm as there are dark clouds around us, thunder booming and getting louder again but there is pink sky south of the raaf base and blue sky peeking thru.

real strange haze

BOM isn't showing too much but from the looks and sound of it we about to be hit again.

- Just checked dam levels, still the same.

Just a warm-up before Queensland storm season really starts, it didn't hang around too long, no big deal on this one.
The best (worst) is yet to come.

Queensland storms are awesome to watch, the flood deaths last yr came from THEM releasing the dam water at the wrong time and too much, our dams are at 97% - 99% and we are still on water restrictions.

IT IS VERY VERY HOT, almost 100 in your scale yesterday and still a couple of weeks til summer.

In the context of my post at the time and followed by the words, THE WORST IS YET TO COME!

In the context of posting on GLP, advising this is relatively normal for qld storm season and NOT some end of the world doom.

I am sorry if I have offended you in some way but please understand the context it was written in.
