SES & Fire Services kept busy over November 29 SEQ Storms

QFES crews have received around 200 requests for assistance (RFAs) following the dangerous thunderstorms that swept across south east Queensland this afternoon.

More than 100 of these RFAs were in the Ipswich area.

The majority of RFAs were for smashed windows, fallen trees and powerlines and leaking roofs.

SES volunteers respond to hundreds of requests during peak storm activity and ask that those requiring assistance be patient. Most SES tasks are not quick jobs, and often extensive work and time is required to attend to storm damage.

For storm and flood emergency assistance contact the State Emergency Service (SES) on 132 500 and in a life-threatening emergency dial Triple Zero (000).


Weather to remain unsettled for several days: BoM

The Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) said weather conditions would remain unsettled for the next few days with more showers across Brisbane and possible storms north of the city this afternoon.

Senior forecaster Brett Harrison said there would be storm activity tomorrow for Brisbane's western suburbs, Ipswich and the Lockyer Valley, and thunderstorms over a broad area on Wednesday.

"We'll see temperatures above 30 for the next couple of days and then a south-easterly change pushing through very late Wednesday and continuing through Thursday and will drop those temperatures back to around the mid 20s increasing slightly into the weekend."
