EARLIER:

A LATE afternoon storm has hit the South Burnett, bringing mixed reports of rain across the region.

Moffatdale copped a drenching, though campers at the Barambah Bush Caravan and Camping Park said it was short lived and quickly slowed to a drizzle before drying up completely.

Whether or not your town received a downpour, Mother Nature did manage to put on a spectacular display and readers have flooded Facebook with their images from this afternoon.

Many of the photos have captured storm clouds with a red tinge, reported to be dust from dry paddocks out of town.
