A hailstorm hit Hastings in the late morning, devastating the region's export apple crop. The storm lasted 10 minutes, with hailstones the size of golfballs. About 3.7 million cartons of the region's pip fruit, 2000 tonnes of stone fruit and 5000 tonnes of squash were written off or downgraded. Sixty hectares of grapes were also affected.
