Severe thunderstorms are continuing about the southern interior

Weather Situation: A surface trough over inland Queensland is resulting in thunderstorms this evening. An upper trough moving across the state will enhance thunderstorm development and increase the risk of severity through this evening.

Severe thunderstorms are likely to produce heavy rainfall that may lead to flash flooding and damaging winds in the warning area over the next several hours. Locations which may be affected include St George, Barcaldine, Tambo, Blackall, Mungindi and Augathella.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Services advises that people should:
* Move your car under cover or away from trees.
* Secure loose outdoor items.
* Never drive, walk or ride through flood waters. If it's flooded, forget it.
* Seek shelter, preferably indoors and never under trees.
* Avoid using the telephone during a thunderstorm.
* Beware of fallen trees and powerlines.
* For emergency assistance contact the SES on 132 500.
