Severe storm warning issued for south-east QldThursday November 22, 2012 - 19:44 EDT
Severe thunderstorms in south-east Queensland have seen golf ball-sized hail fall at Laidley, in the Lockyer Valley.
The storms are moving north and the weather bureau has issued an updated severe storm warning for damaging winds and large hailstones around Kingaroy and Nanango.
Just after 6pm AEST, hail measuring 4-5cm was recorded at Nanango.
The areas around Wondai and Cherbourg will also be affected by the two storm systems.
Other severe thunderstorms are located north-east of Toowoomba.
They are forecast to affect the area west of Toogoolawah, Moore and Linville.
Earlier, senior forecaster Brian Rollstone said the storms cells should be considered dangerous.
"[There's a] a bigger one near Boonah, to the west of Boonah there. A smaller cell is just west of Ipswich," he said.
"The first cell, the smaller cell, actually produced golf ball-sized hail and most likely the southern one, which is a bigger one, will definitely have hail in it.
"The heavier storm actually has wind gusts getting up to 120 kilometres per hour."
The BoM has urged people to move their cars under cover and seek shelter indoors.
At the weekend, south-east Queensland was battered by two major storms.
Thousands of lightning strikes, flash flooding and winds gusting to 125 kilometres per hour hit the region.
