A massive landslide has left behind a trail of destruction in Gold Coast’s hinterland as extreme weather continues to strike Queensland.
The huge boulder as part of the landslide collapsed onto the busy Tamborine Mountain Road, the section between Canungra and Mount Tamborine, compelling the authorities to close the road.
Severe thunderstorms also caused damage in southeast Queensland, as rooftops got ripped off and thrown miles away as thousands of residents went without electricity.
Strong winds removed the roof of a house in Southport, flying it over to the roof of a neighbouring house.
The wild storm cell has also caused havoc down in the southeast coast, as high tides wash away beachfronts at Victoria Point at Bayside in Brisbane.
In some cases, high tides rose to the top of sea walls across the road, and into driveways and front yards of surrounding homes.
Stormassist.com.au has learnt that if the tides had risen any further, then houses would have been completely inundated.
Furthermore, the strong weather events shattered the anchor ropes of boats in Mooloolaba and North Stradbroke Island yesterday.
According to Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, the worst rainfall season had passed.
Nevertheless, more destruction is expected as the highest tide of the year is set to comb the area at 10am.
