Perth Hail Storm March 22nd 2010

Perth suffered devastation after the worst storm hit the region in 50 years. Hailstones up to about 6cm in diameter driven by powerful winds to over 100km/h smashed car windscreens as well as solar panels and windows of homes across the northern suburbs of Perth. Although the rain was welcome breaking a 104 day dry spell, flash flooding caused chaos to traffic and added to the damage of some homes. The Insurance Council of Australia says claims have already exceeded $200 million mark.
