EYEWITNESS ACCOUNT OF THE DESTRUCTION
One hailstorm victim, Tendai Bruce Mubayiwa, described the experience: “We just had a very bad hailstorm in Midrand. This is one of the worst I have experienced. For a minute I feared hail would blast through the roofing tiles. It was loud and terrifying. This was a scary experience.
Unfortunately, one of my neighbours was stuck in traffic during the hailstorm. He is fine but his car has some broken windows”.
