Stormy weather wreaks havoc in Somerset
Emergency crews were kept busy in the Somerset area this week as hail, destructive winds and lightning strikes hit the region.
Two women sustained facial injuries as they were hit by debris when a house in Winya was damaged at about 3pm.
Paramedics treated the women at the scene before they were taken to Caboolture Hospital.
A lightning strike meanwhile sparked a bushfire at Mt Kilcoy, with staff and students evacuated from Mt Kilcoy State School as a result.
Water planes and fire units arrived on scene to get on top of the fire along Jenkinsons Road.
