Thunder storms set to strike again



MONDAY night's vicious storm which left 10,000 without power on Gold Coast, passed over the Tweed with nothing more than a little rain and a lot of noise.

A spectacular display of lighting and thunder lit up the sky from the early evening and was caught on camera by local surf photographer Daniel Harrison who took this stunning picture at about 9.30pm.

"There was this massive amount of lightning, so I ran outside and started taking some snaps," he said. "It was really good viewing after the rain cleared up."

The State Emergency Services on the Tweed were not called out at all.

"All we got was probably a bit of leaf and tree damage last night but there is nothing to get excited over," said Scot Hanckel, spokesman for Richmond Tweed SES.

Bray Park weather observer, Wayne Watson said Murwillumbah recorded 36mm in town and 23.4mm at the observatory but expects more rain to fall in the coming days.

"There will be more rain. There's a lot of humidity around and there's still a lot of cloud coming in from the north-east," he said.
