A teenager has been struck by lightning during dangerous thunderstorms in Queensland's south-east that caused structural damage and left thousands without power.
Senior Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Sam Campbell said several supercell storms moved into Queensland from New South Wales late this afternoon causing hail and major damage along the way.
"We have some top end supercell thunderstorms and we have reports of roofs removed at Gatton, swift water rescues at Salisbury in Brisbane," he said.
"We have another line of significant storms moving in from the west moving into the Brisbane."
The first storm swept through Brisbane's CBD, Brisbane Airport, Nudgee, Samford and Albany Creek about 5:25pm, before moving north-east all the way through to waters off Bribie Island.
Another storm cell hit Boonah, Laidley, Gatton, Esk's west and south-west, Burpengary and Brighton about 5:50pm.
Cells hit Caboolture, Kilcoy and Kingaroy north-west of Brisbane after 7:00pm, and were forecast to move over Maroochydore and Caloundra before reaching Gympie by 8:05pm.http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-12-03/storms-lash-queensland-as-heatwave-continues/8089680
