Severe storm warnings for SEQ and Central Qld

LESS than 24 hours after a powerful supercell storm ripped through parts of southeast Queensland, a new severe storm warning has been issued.

About a dozen residents were left homeless following Tuesday's storm activity and while the clean-up continues, the wild weather continues this morning.

The Bureau of Meteorology warned that severe thunderstroms that are likely to produce heavy rain and flash flooding were detected on the radar and are set to affect the Gold Coast and parts of Central Queensland this morning.

"Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding in the warning area over the next several hours," the Bureau said.

"Locations which may be affected include Gold Coast, Coolangatta, Yeppoon, Baralaba, Marlborough and Woorabinda."

Double the average monthly rainfall could fall on the Gold Coast this week according to forecasters. And huge waves could greet surfers by the weekend.

The drenching rain arrived overnight with the deluge expected to continue until early next week.
