Financial services and insurance provider Suncorp says so far the Queensland storms have caused a minimum of large losses, but the wild weather hasn't finished yet.

The head of personal insurance claims at Suncorp Insurance, Geoff Keogh, said on Sunday that Suncorp Insurance had started receiving claims from the wild weather that has battered Queensland over the Australian Day long weekend.

"Thankfully, there has been a minimal amount of large losses, but it is important to remember that this storm cell is expected to continue over the coming days," Mr Keogh said in a statement.

"Our Queensland call centres had additional staff working last night, handling a wide range of calls including high-wind damage in Bundaberg, localised flooding in Rocky (Rockhampton) and Gladstone and roof water entry in the southeast."
