Man and horse killed in storm tragedy

A CATTLE musterer, originally from Mitchell, and his horse have died after being hit by two falling trees on Tuesday near Augathella.

A 77-year-old man was mustering cattle with a group of workers when a storm hit.

It is understood a nearby tree snapped and hit the rider and his horse, with a second tree later falling on them both, killing the man and the horse.

Poor weather continues to affect western Queensland, including a dramatic dust storm in Charleville.
