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.

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.
