SEVERE QUEENSLAND STORM LEAVES 6000 WITHOUT POWER

A damaging storm has turned "day into night" in Brisbane, as lightning and winds brought down powerlines and left more than 6000 homes and businesses without electricity.

Meanwhile, another severe thunderstorm warning has been issued for other parts of the state.

The Queensland State Emergency Service (SES) was busy cleaning up the Brisbane CBD on Saturday afternoon after wild weather ripped through the city at about 11am (AEST) on Saturday.
