Storm leaves one dead and 110,000 homes without electricity in Australia  world

An electrical storm and strong winds knocked out power to 110,000 homes in eastern Australia, where a fallen tree killed a woman, authorities said on Tuesday (Thursday 26, 25, in Brazil).

“The storm caused catastrophic damage, disrupting the power grid in Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, and the Gold Coast region,” energy company Energex said.

“It's not easy to say, but some customers will be without power for days. We are seeing catastrophic and widespread damage on a hurricane-like scale,” the company said on social media.

The Queensland Ambulance Service said a 59-year-old woman died when a tree fell on the Gold Coast. Paramedic Jay Newton, who was at the scene, said: “Unfortunately, she suffered a serious head injury and died. We were unable to revive her.”

Another fallen tree trapped a woman in her car for more than an hour, the paramedic told reporters.

“It was like a disaster zone, there were trees all over the road,” Newton added, describing how the winds uprooted trees and toppled roofs.

Today, Tuesday, the Meteorological Authority expected severe electrical storms, strong winds, and heavy rain with hail.

It also issued a flood warning for a river located about 40 kilometers from the Gold Coast.
