An early evening squall line as viewed from Noosa. Earlier, a supercell that moved out of this squall line (to be re-ingested later on as it progressed northwards) produced serveral tornadoes along it's path, including one through the western suburbs of Redcliffe which (along with straight line winds from the supercell itself) left 500 houses unroofed, 1000 damaged and 12 structually unsafe.
