Italy: Violent hailstorm hits South Tyrol

A violent hailstorm struck several areas of Val Venosta on Monday. Early reports suggested that 200 hectares had been affected. It should be said that the majority of apple orchards, which are the main crop in the area, are protected by anti-hail nets. The problems have therefore mainly hit plants which are still uncovered.
