Fast breaking if a woman gets her haidh in the latter part of the day

Q: If you get your period (haidh) during the latter part of the day (e.g. an hour before maghrib), does your fast break and is qadha necessary or is the fast accepted?

A: Yes, it breaks and qadha is necessary.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
