WATCH: Hail hammers Australia

Weather

AUSTRALIA (CBS) — Australia has been devastated by wildfires for months, and now, strong storms are battering the area. Severe weather has brought large hailstones, ripping through Australia’s capital and causing damage to property.

Some hail is reportedly the size of golf balls. The pieces were big enough to smash car windows and injure birds.

Monday’s storm was less than 24 hours after the area was hit by massive dust storms.

Australia’s national weather agency on Monday warned that thunderstorms may bring damaging winds, large hail and burst of heavy rainfall as they move across the landscape.
