Unsuspecting drivers are caught in a terrifying storm after the weather suddenly changes, sending hail and torrential rain pouring onto the road.
Dashcam footage captured in Perth in Western Australia shows what appears to be normal rain with just a little bit of water.
The weather then turns to the worst, when suddenly a torrential downpour begins, destroying trees and suddenly flooding roads.
The driver drives forward in sheets of heavy rainfall, breaking trees and flying into the vehicle’s path.
Fortunately, the motorist is able to stop, narrowly missing branches that land in the vehicle’s path and a stray umbrella flying across the road in the footage filmed on February 28 last year.
The driver tries to turn around and escape the storm, but the huge amount of water continues to fall on the car.

Other motorists maneuver carefully around residential roads as the water quickly fills the curb.
While the motorist drives on, we see leaves and branches on the road.
A huge tree can also be seen blocking half of the passage as the driver is forced to climb the curb to continue.
