A wild storm has caused problems at a central Queensland airport overnight.
A lightning strike near the Thangool Aerodrome, south-west of Gladstone, blew the fuses of a plane preparing to take off about 6:00pm AEST last night, while a light pole from the tennis club crashed through a fence.
Greg Bond from the weather bureau says there has been widespread rain through the region, including reports of more than 110 millimetres at Biloela and 80mm on the Capricorn Coast.
"Particularly over the southern half of the Capricornia region and into the very ... bottom part of the central highlands, where a pretty extensive east-west line of thunderstorms got going through the afternoon and came up from the south and then gradually petered out as it got towards, Yeppoon, Rocky and that sort of area," he said.
