Floods and severe storms with hail are the most common natural disasters in Brisbane. These storms have become increasingly stronger in intensity, with lightning strikes and high, gusting winds causing major damage. Bushfires occasionally occur in the mountains around the city, but these never cause major damage.

Cyclones very rarely reach as far south as Brisbane, the last one significant one being in 1974 when "Cyclone Wanda" dumped a huge amount of water in the Brisbane catchment, contributing to massive floods. Having said that, however, meteorologists are predicting more cyclones to occur near Brisbane in the 2010-2011 Summer season.
