GRENFELL: Hail fell in a town in Australia's New South Wales (NSW) state on Monday (December 25), creating a whiteout landscape on Christmas Day.

Video filmed by eyewitness Peter Strong showed hailstones covering a suburban lawn in Grenfell and heavy rainfall.

Weather authorities said they had received reports of large-sized hailstones over 5 cm (2 inches) falling in the same region in NSW, according to local media outlet ABC News.
