Arabia Weather - Violent thunderstorms struck some areas in eastern Australia on Saturday, resulting in heavy rain, hailstones, and strong winds. This stormy weather is expected to extend for more than a thousand kilometers, from the city of Port Macquarie in the state of New South Wales to Rockhampton in the state of Queensland. The rainwater level also rose in some areas to about 110 millimeters within two hours of Saturday morning, and hailstones up to 6 centimeters in size were observed falling.

The disturbed weather is expected to continue until the beginning of the new year.

Two people were taken to hospital after being struck by lightning, one of whom was injured inside a car and the other while on an excavator.

On the other hand, northern and western Australia are experiencing the effects of an intense heat wave. Temperatures in the remote town of Marble Bar in northwest Western Australia are expected to reach 49 degrees Celsius on Saturday.
