Jervis Bay Items.

 

Hail and a water spout 1939.

This short article appeared in the Canberra Times in 1939.
The bay is often subjected to large storms, a hot humid day, culminating in a large thunderstorm is quite common over summer.
But, I don’t think I have ever heard of seven and a quarter inch wide hail stones before.
