Hail storm pounds vehicles, homes in Sydney

Video obtained by Reuters shows giant hail pelting incessantly on houses and parked vehicles in a driveway amid rain, as trees swayed in strong winds.

"(It was) almost 15 mins straight nonstop of just hail, thunder, lighting and rain," Twitter user @AH_MINI told Reuters.

According to officials at the Bureau of Meteorology, a tornado warning was issued for western Sydney earlier in the day, but the system appeared to have weakened.
