Southern Coastal, Western Australia
Vast areas of Queensland have experienced the hottest May night since records began, some of which stretch back to the 1800s.

Strong winds and heavy rain lashed parts of Victoria overnight, with hundreds of residents calling the State Emergency Service (SES) for help.
