Storms developed on a southeast change clipping the Northern Rivers coastline from about 7.30pm Saturday 26 Oct 2013. Jason Paterson and I ventured down to Ballina for some lightning and were treated to quite a nice display. A severe storm developed at South Ballina and caused flash flooding and hail. There were unconfirmed reports of hailstones up to golf ball size but suspect the biggest were about 2-3cm.
