Weather Wars News: Brisbane smashed by hailstones and high winds

Queensland’s Premier has called in the Army to help clean up after a super cell storm caused major destruction in the state’s south east on Thursday afternoon.

The storm packed wind gusts of more than 140 kilometres per hour and caused damage and destruction across Brisbane and areas to the west.

The weather bureau said two storm cells joined to create a super cell, producing large hail stones that battered windows on homes, cars and high-rise buildings.

A woman was injured by a falling tree, while at Archerfield airport, planes and helicopters were flipped and major damage was caused to airport infrastructure.
