A thunderstorm last month over Queensland's south-east came as a surprise to many after months of dry weather. Beautifully captured by Brent Keilly in the photo above, it's a sure sign that summer – and summer storm season – is just around the corner.
As this funny video with a serious message from SES Victoria says: you never know when a storm is going to hit. So using this time to prepare your home and family is a great choice.
