More severe thunderstorms are expected to lash Queensland’s southeast again this weekend, as residents continue the cleanup from the Christmas storms that killed seven people.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) released a severe thunderstorm warning on Saturday, stating “several waves of thunderstorms, some severe, are likely today”.

Severe thunderstorm cells, similar to the ones seen during the Christmas storms, are capable of producing damaging winds and large hailstones.

“(The) immediate threat is areas over parts of Scenic Rim, Southern Downs, Western Downs and Toowoomba Council Areas,” BOM tweeted.

Severe thunderstorms are also warned for parts of Moreton Bay and parts of the Sunshine Coast on Saturday morning.

BOM also warned of isolated “very dangerous thunderstorms” possible southeast of Emerald.

It comes as the southeast continues to recover from a series of severe storms earlier this week, leaving seven people dead and homes and infrastructure damaged, while thousands are still without power.

The state’s energy provider Energex said it was aiming to have power back to 80 per cent of impacted customers by Saturday, and 90 per cent by Sunday night, after damage to some networks required them to be completely rebuilt.
