Hail storm floods Vernon
The skies opened above Vernon Tuesday afternoon unleashing a wrath of rain and hail.
Castanet readers are telling us the hail caused damage and several intersections in downtown Vernon are flooded.
The storm started shortly after 3 p.m. and the rain continued well past 4 p.m.
Witnesses says the intersection at the bottom of Hospital Hill, at Hwy. 97 and 25th Avenue, is flooded and vehicles are driving through water up to two feet deep.
City of Vernon's Public Works Department says storm sewers are draining, but may take several minutes to catch up with the volume of water.
