The Bureau of Meteorology has advised Energex of a dangerous storm heading for South East Queensland.
The storm is likely to produce damaging high winds, lightning and large hailstones.
Energex is urging home and business owners to take a look around their properties and tidy up any loose items.
Items such as building materials and outdoor furniture can become dangerous missiles when left outside during high winds so where possible store these safely in a secure place.
Energex is also encouraging people to ensure they have a torch with fresh batteries and keep a radio handy to monitor storm information.
Energex emergency response crews are on standby and ready to respond to any interruptions caused by expected severe weather and will restore any power issues as soon as it is safe to do so.
Energex asks south east Queenslanders to remain patient if they suffer a power interruption.
If members of the public see any powerlines brought down or damaged they are urged to call the Energex emergency line on 13 19 62 and stay clear.
