Delta City Hall hail

Hail came down so fast around the city, it amassed to over two inches thick along streets and neighborhood yards. Photos and video taken during the storm looked more like a winter scene than one from mid-August.

Many of Delta's 3,600 homes were flooded during Tuesday night's severe weather, and many were left without power.

“No one has arrived that hasn’t been effected in one way or another, everybody’s home has some water,” said Jody Anderson.
