For the second time this week, Queensland’s picturesque Sunshine Coast is about to be saturated by the moisture of yet another high-energy storm.

Still recovering from the Melbourne Storm Grand Final kick-ons that destroyed several local businesses and kept residents awake for nearly 48 hours – the region is once again preparing for the worst.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) has issued a severe thunderstorm warning for people in parts of the Gympie, Somerset, Scenic Rim, South Burnett, Noosa, Sunshine Coast and Moreton Bay council areas.

A short time ago, a series of storm cells were moving east across the southern inland, impacting Nanango and Kilcoy.

Earlier today, BOM forecasters said the storm had “high-end severe potential with these systems.”

“You’re talking large hail, damaging winds and heavy rainfall”

“This will probably not be as hectic as the NRL Premiership winners Mad Monday at Twin Waters, but there will be similarly destruction and very, very unpredictable storm behaviour patterns.”

It comes after a wild Melbourne Storm lashed the Sunshine Coast after their plane landed at 3am on Monday morning, resulting in power outages in Queensland, rockslides on beaches and a smog of smoke as Nelson Asofa-Solomona whipped out the DJ decks and hammered a few Cuban stogies.

As was the case yesterday, not one of Bellamy’s players are available for comment, but hotel staff within their Sunshine Coast COVIDbubble resort says all windows and doors have been battened since they arrived back with the silverware yesterday morning.

Ryan Papenhuyzen was last seen playing poker in the back streets of Maroochydore with several non-English-speaking UberEats cyclists.

Brandon Smith has woken up in Bundaberg, somehow.
