Power has been restored across Brisbane after the first storm of the season hit in dramatic fashion.

An Energex spokesperson said over 16,000 homes were without power at the storms peak, but power had been restored in the early hours of Tuesday.

Shocking pictures emerged of storm damage south of Brisbane after the system, packing gusts of up to 80km/h, struck on Monday evening.

The Logan suburb of Rochedale South was hard hit, with the roof of one home peeled off and left hanging precariously in a tree.

There are also reports of structural damage in the southern Brisbane suburb of Acacia Ridge.

SES crews logged over 60 calls for help during the storm and it's believed at least 12 homes were damaged in the storm, which also uprooted trees.

Emergency crews returned to affected properties on Tuesday to continue with the clean up.
