Bypassing the Gold Coast, the cell slammed into Greenbank soon after, bringing heavy rainfall, damaging winds and large damaging hailstones.
Golf ball to tennis ball sized hail has been recorded in suburbs including Browns Plains, Regents Park, Parkinson, Greenbank, Hillcrest, Boronia Heights and Forestdale.
The slow moving storm has since weakened considerably as it contracts offshore.
At the time of writing, State Emergency Service crews were busy responding to 46 storm-related call outs across Brisbane’s south.
