Planes were flipped and roofs ripped off when hail and powerful winds tore through Australia's east coast, leaving a damage bill of more than 100 million dollars as the army helped clear up.

The storm, which officials said was one of the worst seen in the country and the strongest to hit the city of Brisbane in three decades, rained hailstones the size of tennis balls on cars and buildings, flooding streets and injuring 39 people.

Gusts of up to 140 kilo meters per hour, as strong as a Category Two cyclone, also uprooted trees and brought down power lines.
