Apocalyptic hailstorm rips off roofs and wipes out crops in Sunraysia, Australia

Hail Formation Alert

“It’s the first time I can remember a hailstorm like this”
A weekend hailstorm described as being like a tornado has ruined fruit crops and damaged homes in Sunraysia in north-west Victoria.
 
Roofs were blown off homes and property was damaged in the Gol Gol and Curlwaa districts when the storm swept along the Murray River on Saturday afternoon.
 
Reports of significant damage to grape and citrus crops have also emerged and there have been suggestions the cost could be in the millions of dollars.
 
The Sunraysia Tablegrape Growers’ Association’s John Argiro said the hail wiped out his crops in the Merbein and Yelta districts.
 
“My father has been out here for 50 years and he told me as a kid growing up, he says it follows the river … it’s the first time I can remember a hailstorm like this going through and making a mess the way it has,” he said.
 
He said fruit that was due to be harvested in a few weeks had been ruined.
 
“Yes, well at my properties and my brother’s property at Merbein West/Yelta we’ve lost, well, it’s a wipeout,” he said.
 
“It’s got to be at least 80 to 90 per cent damage, it’s ‘un-pickable’ … looks like it’s been through 10 rounds with Muhammad Ali.”

USA sneezes and Britain gets a cold: UK to freeze NEXT WEEK as temperatures drop to -7C
BRITAIN is on heightened alert for a catastrophic big freeze to grind the country to a halt with the first blast from the North Pole due NEXT WEEK.
