These are some photos of the apocalyptic freak hail storm that went through Ladysmith at around 18h00 on Sunday 09/12/12. I will post some pics of the damage tomorrow.

In my 26 years in Ladysmith i've never seen anything like this.
The hail damaged most of the roof tiles on my and numerous other houses in the Model Kloof area.
Hail came through the roof and through the celing into the house.
We now have severe water damage through out the house.
The hail also came through 11 of my house windows.
