WHEN Aimee Peters and her colleagues at ANZ's Rockhampton CBD branch heard the thunder this afternoon, they headed outside.

Aimee and her colleagues Nikita Lamba and Sunita Hill went across to the Kern Arcade car park and moved their vehicles from the top level.

Shortly after the heavens opened. Heavy rain fell across the CBD. Small pieces of hail were spotted.

And there was an amazing display of lightening followed by, at times, deafening claps of thunder.

"It's lovely," Aimee said, standing on the second floor of the car park having moved her vehicle down.

"This is much-needed rain for the region."

She said she could hear the thunder from her office.

 

WARNING: Large hail, flash flooding for Capricornia.
