Violent Storm Passes Through Caroline Area

A storm front moved through the Caroline area at approximately 12:30 am on the morning of Monday, August 3.
In the Crammond area the storm provided a continuous lighting light show and dropped 3/4inch of rain during its relatively short duration. It was preceded during the previous afternoon by a similar storm which also dropped 3/4 inch of rain in the Crammond area. Evidence of the size of the storm front became evident during a drive on country roads in the Caroline area on the morning after where hail stones, flattened roadside grass and broken trees were observed along a front of several kilometers. Temperatures over the weekend were in the 25-30 degree Celsius
