Hail destroys homes throughout Ladysmith

A devastating freak hail storm did widespread damage throughout greater Ladysmith earlier this evening (Sunday). Hardest hit was Acaciavale and Smartiesville, with reports coming in of massive hail damage and flooding. Residents described the hail stones as being as big as tennis balls. At least one home had its roof collapse. Some areas are without power and emergency services are responding. Reports also came in of tennis-ball-size hail stones falling in Roosboom, Colenso and Bergville. These reports filtered in shortly after the initial storm damage reports from town. We will be posting more photos of the damage tomorrow morning.
