Severe Hailstorm Approaching

At the time of taking this photo I had no knowledge of the fury this storm was about to unleash.
Any motor vehicle that was not undercover was severely damaged by solid ice hailstones bigger than golf balls.
Some friends of mine holidaying in the local caravan park had $22,000 worth of damage to their 4wd,
their brand new caravan was written off due to excessive damage, further inland it spawned several Tornadoes
but being a largely uninhabited area most damage was confined to Crops, native vegetation, stock fences and a few farmers storage sheds.
