Malta has been hit by severe weather, with a hailstorm reported in Mosta and nearby places.
The sky suddenly darkened and hail stones as big as a fist covered the streets in white. The storm hit the northern parts of Malta, with Bugibba, Mosta and Naxxar seems to be hit the most.
Lightening and a downpour of heavy rain replaced the sunshine in a matter of minutes. Readers reported broken windows with the strong wind.
The Civil Protection Department has issued a weather warning.
Motorists were urged to avoid low lying areas because of the risk of flooding.
