Severe storm warning cancelled for south-east Queensland

Sunday November 10, 2013 - 16:15 EDT

A severe thunderstorm warning, which was issued for south-east Queensland, has now been cancelled.

The immediate threat of severe thunderstorms has passed but the situation will continue to be monitored, the Bureau of Meteorology said.

The warning was initially issued for damaging winds and heavy rainfall which could have lead to flash-flooding and large hailstones.

Earlier, hailstones had fallen in parts of Logan, with the Oxley Creek catchment in Brisbane recording 46mm of rainfall.

The storms had also forced organisers to suspend play in the final round of the Australian PGA Championship at the Gold Coast.
