Sudden Hail

We were not long in Hyde Park before a rumble of thunder suggested we move on. Within a few moments of reaching shelter a hail storm begun. The hail was dense and soaked those caught within its reach.

While not as intense as the hail storm we experienced in Melbourne, the storm was impressive for being so sudden. These storms are not rare in Sydney; the storm drains are built to handle the deluges and the traffic continues largely unaffected.

Suddenly the hail begun, Sydney, Australia.

I took some footage and have embedded a short film of the hail below.
