All hail stormy sky

Pinjarra Murray Times - - FRONT PAGE -

SWIM­MING to escape the heat then build­ing snow­men at night was the re­al­ity for many Man­durah res­i­dents on Sun­day.

Man­durah’s sky put on a spec­tac­u­lar show while res­i­dents shel­tered from mas­sive hail­stones as a storm rolled through the south­ern sub­urbs on Sun­day night.

The re­gion was hit by the state’s sec­ond wave of hail in a day.

Some res­i­dents re­ported sig­nif­i­cant dam­age to their prop­erty af­ter large hail­stones hit their homes and took to so­cial me­dia to share their best pic­tures of the sur­prise storm.

State Emer­gency Ser­vices re­sponded to 30 calls overnight, with Meadow Springs near Man­durah the worst af­fected.

More than 3900 res­i­dents from Se­cret Har­bour to Golden Bay were with­out power.

Putting on a show: the Man­durah Ma­rina sky­line was spec­tac­u­lar.

Chil­dren made the most of the hail.
