Storms light up night skies, provide just a drop of relief
STORMS that swept over Toowoomba and parts of the Darling Downs last night delivered plenty of lightning and thunder, but just a drop of rain.
Isolated showers were reported across the region, but the thunderstorms brought more wind and lightning than rain.
Less than a millimetre was recorded at the Toowoomba Airport. There were reports of up to 10mm at Highfields and "heavy rain and hail" at Cambooya.
