This video shows a ferocious hail storm raining down on a South African suburb.
The footage shows enormous hailstones hammering down on to a woman’s garden and swimming pool.
Diane Spanjaard, 64, captured the footage outside her garden in December 2017, after being shocked at how strong the hailstorm was.
Diane, from Gauteng, South Africa: “Much damage was done in my hometown to cars, roads and trees.
“The roads were very dangerous during the storm and for quite a while after it, and there were quite a lot of road accidents.
“Many roofs of buildings collapsed, and houses were heavily damaged – there were multiple incidents for the emergency services to attend to.
“To me, it was beauty and devastation simultaneously, and it was a quite extraordinary force of nature to witness.
“The hailstorm lasted for about 20 minutes before stopping.”
