#AceNewsReport – Oct.20: Mr Harvey said living in the tropics he had never seen hail that size and was worried it could have caused serious harm: Humans, livestock, or anything left unattended, could have suffered a lot of damage,” Mr Harvey said.
#AceWeatherDesk says according to ABC News BOM says ‘Australian record’-sized hailstones have fallen on North Queensland: We’ve seen some convincing images of hail up against a tape measure of 16cm,” Australian Bureau of Meteorology forecaster Shane Kennedy said.
“The Australian record was sitting around the 14cm mark:
“It does look like it’s an Australian record for hail.
“Hail that size has a terminal velocity of well over 100km an hour.”
Proserpine resident Christopher Harvey was driving to Mackay when rain falling on his car began to sound heavier.
“I pulled up and realised how big it was. I could see the driver in front of me had a windscreen already damaged,” he said.
“[It was] larger than a tennis ball, even outdoor lawn bowl ball size.
“Even an hour later it’s still larger than my hand.”
He and other motorists caught in the storm suffered extensive damage to their vehicles.
“I took a quick video as it went through my back windscreen, then not long after it’s gone through my front windscreen,” he said.
“It hit my roof, pushed my glasses holder down, done a fair bit of damage.”
The Bureau of Meteorology announced a severe weather warning for parts of Central and North Queensland on Tuesday afternoon.
North Queensland’s giant hail comes a day after a tornado and wild weather whipped through the Darling Downs region.
