Intense Hailstorm Hits Wawa

Wawa, Ontario Canada
July 19, 2007

At 11:42 p.m. last night it seemed as if it was the middle of winter. The hail, lightning and wind storm that lasted for nearly half an hour tore leaves from the trees as it seemed to hail sideways!

This animation from the Montreal River Weather Radar site shows the passage of the storm over Wawa.

Wawaweather.com reported at 12:00 a.m. that the wind had gusted to 62 km/h during the storm. The hail was landing with so much force that hail was spread all over the carpet under my roofed deck. The deck is 10 feet wide under the deck, and there was hail spread from edge to edge.
