Australia’s south-east has been lashed by severe thunderstorms and large hailstones that destroyed buildings and cars in Canberra and left two tourists in hospital after they were injured by lightning.
Two supercell thunderstorms brought hail and heavy rain to cities and towns across the east coast on Monday, battering the outer suburbs of Sydney about 3pm, with 4.5cm hailstones recorded and strong winds bringing trees down over cars in the Sutherland area.
In Canberra, where two people were also treated for minor injuries, a 15-minute blast of wild weather just before 1pm resulted in wind gusts up to 117km/h, while golf-ball-sized hailstones smashed through car windows and ripped branches from trees.
