The weather bureau is warning that central Queensland could be in the firing line from thunderstorms today.
South-east Queensland and northern New South Wales were battered by severe storms over the weekend that caused widespread damage and power cuts.
Rockhampton forecaster Brendan Bradford says some storms hit the southern parts of central Queensland last night and early this morning.
"Some of those storms have even been moving just off Curtis Island early this morning and still some lightning strikes around there," he said.
"They look to have eased now and we've cancelled all warnings, but we did gets some reports of very gusty winds with those storms.
"There's some potential there today for gusty winds with the thunderstorms and the possibility of hail."
