Italy struck with orange-size hail

Hail the size of oranges has injured 18 people in an Italian Adriatic city, while a blaze in Sicily forced beachgoers to flee.

The Italian news agency ANSA quoted Pescara hospital emergency room officials as saying that Wednesday’s hailstorm caused cuts requiring sutures and bruises, especially on the head. Elsewhere in south-central Italy, hail in Venafro broke windows and windshields.
