HAIL stones of up to 4cm and damaging winds were part of an urgent warning issued yesterday by the Bureau of Meteorology just after 4:30pm.
The small but intense frontal system hit Coraki first and alarms went off across the Northern Rivers via social media.
It seemed everyone put their Sunday afternoon drinks away and sobered up for the storm.
The storm lasted less than an hour, and the hail did not fall as big or as strong as predicted.
No cars or property were reported as damaged in Lismore.
Areas of Goonellabah, such as Corrine Place (see picture), were covered by a white iced blanket to the amusement of children and adults.
The Northern Rivers SES recorded the biggest number of calls for assistance in the Tweed area.
