South-east Queensland residents woke to loud cracks of thunder early this morning, as a band of storms moved across the region, delivering almost 10,000 lightning strikes.
Top End residents are unlikely to be relieved of the oppressive hot and humid build up conditions until Christmas, because the rain-bringing La Niña weather pattern is unlikely to eventuate in coming months, the Bureau of Meteorology has warned.
An international tourist has died and a woman has been injured after being hit by lightning while camping at Mt Warning, on the NSW north coast, police say.
