A hailstorm hit some parts of Murewa yesterday afternoon bringing business operations to a halt while motorists had to stop.

The storm caught most people unaware while others took the opportunity to enjoy the unexpected weather phenomenon.

Ms Nancy Gwede who was travelling from Nyadire Mission to Harare around 1600 hours said the storm started when they had just left Murewa Centre near Mukwa Centre and stretched for over 6 kilometres after Chivake River Bridge.
