Brisbane just got absolutely damaged by giant hail bombs… And some even made holes in roofs… What the hell!?!

By Strange Sounds -Oct 31, 2020

Supercell thunderstorms caused havoc in south-east Queensland on Saturday afternoon, bringing giant hailstones and damaging winds to several regions.

The Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) at one stage warned of “life threatening” conditions, as the severe weather system hit.

Many cars across that city were damaged as hail pummeled the area, with rooves on houses also badly impacted.

And some hail even went through the roofs of houses.

Insane, isn’t it? And look at the wind accompagnying these ice bombs. OMG!

Nearly 50,000 homes in southeast Queensland were without power by 6pm.

Giant hail

Hail as big as 14 centimeteres was even reported at Forestdale, south of Brisbane.

Large hail also slammed other areas, including Gatton, Adare, Seventeen Mile, Toowoomba, Purga, Amberley, Toowong and Boronia Heights.

The size of the hail caused significant damage, with the SES responding to thousands of calls for help for rooves that were smashed.

We heard it coming up the valley and it was like a bomb hit the area. Huge hail, so much damage,” a Springfield Lakes resident told 7NEWS.

It did damage to the car… it was pretty big,” another resident said.

A few days ago, gargantuan hail fell in Libya too!

Public transport

Public transport was impacted, with Beenleigh and Gold Coast train lines suspended between Helensvale and Kuraby for hours due to overhead power lines down.

Trams were also suspended between Helensvale & Southport stations due to a power outage, but have since resumed.

The BOM said on Twitter that “supercell development” and the threat of giant hail had eased by Saturday night, but continued to warn of severe thunderstorms ahead: “Things are volatile & dangerous storms are likely to keep firing up this evening.

Conditions are set to ease for south-east Queensland on Sunday, with a sunny day expected.

Now, imagine a terrible hailstorm where the hailstones weigh 75 pounds!!!! That day will eventually come (Revelation 16:21). (Click to Source)
