STORM DAMAGE: Lucky escape for Southern Downs school
THE storms that ripped through the Darling Downs area this morning weren't without consequence.
Allora State School felt the impact of the storm, with damage caused by a falling tree.
A spokeswoman said the school is grateful nobody was hurt in the storm.
"A really large tree behind one of the buildings fell, and took the gutter off the building,” she said.
"It was so lucky that it missed everything around it.
"It did some damage, but it was a lucky angle at which it fell.
"New brick work was just laid, and it missed all of that.”
