There were some impressive storms across eastern NSW which produced so much lightning in areas where people were enjoying their holidays – someone had to be hit! The man touching a mast was struck but luckily not to be killed. This happened in the Hunter region.
Some impressive storms occurred including hail to 6cm at Comboyne with more incredibly structured storms in the Northern Rivers. We were able to view the aftermath of the hailstorm that went through Cooronbong and there still was hailstones lying there 4 hours later.
