Large Hail Batters Town In Australia's Sunshine Coast (VIDEO)

Tennis ball-sized hail was part of a severe thunderstorm that hit eastern Australia on Saturday.

The video above, filmed in Maroochydore on Australia's Sunshine Coast, shows the "apocalyptic-sized" ice balls raining down into the South Maroochy River from a 12-story vantage point. (Watch the footage in the clip above.)

The hail, which in some places was larger than pool balls, may have caused millions of dollars in damages, authorities say. Just take a look at the image below!
