Severe thunderstorms rolled across Southeast New Brunswick today bringing winds, heavy rain and even hail to some areas.

In the Shediac and Pointe-du-Chene area, marble-sized hail fell for more than twenty minutes covering the ground in white.

Heavy downpours also caused minor, localized flooding in the region.

Environment Canada says the unsettled weather is expected to end around midnight.
