Now THATS a hailstorm :clap:

The "storm clouds" are responsible for the rains with thunder and hail that hit the Valley of Mexico Sunday, Monday and will continue to affect the Mexican capital, according to the National Weather Forecast System ( SMN).

This weather phenomenon is present in the center, east, south and southeast of the country, and in recent times has been strengthened with the entry of moisture from the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico, so there are very heavy rains forecast for these regions.

This "zone of storm clouds" strong cause very heavy rainfall (50 to 75 mm) in the State of Mexico, Puebla and Veracruz, as well as (25 to 50 mm) een Mexico City, Querétaro, Guanajuato, Hidalgo, Morelos, Tlaxcala, Guerrero, Oaxaca, Chiapas and Yucatan.

During the afternoon and evening of Sunday, a severe storm caused water logging and blocking by hail about three feet high in the center-west of the Mexican capital region and in the neighboring municipalities of Naucalpan and Tlalnepantla north.

Roads such as the North Loop were flooded by hail and flooding, so municipal and Federal District workers labored for hours to clear them, Notimex reported. ... t=&act=url
