Nambour-Connection Rd has been reduced to carnage as howling winds have felled trees, damaging cars and causing traffic chaos.
A powerful surge of winds that ripped through in the last half hour has brought down trees over a kilometre or so of road between Nambour and Woombye.
Motorists are out of their cars using winches to drag fallen trees off the roadway, to enable traffic to pass.
One woman in an SUV appeared to have been a victim, a tree falling causing damage to the front of her vehicle.
Debris is littered all over the road as some have taken to the scattered trees with hatchets to try and clear the path for other drivers.
