I live at Maroochydore, and the storm struck at about 3:30, before that there was constant rumbling from thunder and was getting windy, unfortunately we had a visitor but had to leave, I first heard about it on the radio at around 2, then that prompted me to log on and to my amazement and shock there were severe cells with brown on the radar, with quite severe cells around the Caboolture area.
We saw the sky go greeny, and in about 3 mins we saw pea sized hail mixed in with rain going ding ding against the windows, I didn't see any golf ball sized at all, nor did it get very windy at all and moderate rain only fell. A bit disappointed but then again my adrenalin was intense. At about 4:35 we heard a big bang!!! but that's about it. And no damage happened but I've seen worse.
Unfortunately the Brisbane Doppler radar was knocked out from 4:30 to 6:30 PM.
