Heavy hail and rain this afternoon affected the cities of Almafuerte, Embalse, La Cruz and Rio Tercero southwest of Córdoba, Argentina.
More than 1.5 m (4.9 feet) of hail accumulated within 15 minutes, burying cars, damaging roofs and triggering widespread power outages.
Just a day after the severe hailstorm in Formosa, Argentina on October, another apocalyptic hailstorm dropped an unbelievable quantity of hail within minutes on the province of Cordoba, Argentina on October 26, 2017.
In the city of La Cruz, 70 millimeters of water fell within 15 minutes and sections of streets were covered by several inches of hailstones.
The powerful storm also triggered widespread power outages in the city during a few hours and rivers of hail in the streets:

Cars weren’t able to drive anymore and were swimming in a sea of ice stones! No injuries or casualties were reported.
In some sections, the accumulated hail had to be removed with loader blades.
