Drivers were delayed by flooding in St Austell
Flash flooding has hit homes and delayed drivers in Devon and Cornwall.
Homes in Par, St Blazey, Carlyon Bay, St Austell and Exeter were affected, with flooding up to 2ft deep in some areas and hailstones "like marbles".
In Exeter, commuters faced traffic chaos as flooding shut a major route at the junction of Honiton Road and Sweetbrier Lane.
The A3082 main road at Par Docks near St Austell was also flooded, causing traffic delays.
Cornwall Fire Brigade was called out to several incidents in St Austell at about 1500 BST.
A spokesman said: "We attended two domestic properties, one in Eton Road and another in Chapmans Way, and assisted with salvage and removal of water."
Lindsey Kennedy, who was driving home on the school run from Grampound towards the village of Coombe near St Austell, said: "There was a hail storm and it was a total white out.
"We had to stop the car. The hailstones were the size of marbles.
"We were all very nervous and thought the windscreen was going to come in on us.
"It was like a scene from winter."
