Fierce Hailstorm Batters Eastern Georgia

Residents in eastern Georgia are just beginning to recover from a brutal hailstorm last week that destroyed millions of dollars in crops, killed livestock, and left buildings decimated. The storm pulled down power lines, battered vineyards and rooftops, and killed hundreds of chickens and other livestock caught outside during the deluge. Aid groups have called it "the largest disaster in Georgia since the August 2008 conflict" with Russia.
