The powerful storm  also triggered widespread power outages in the city during a few hours and rivers of hail in the streets:

But the most complex situations were created by unbelievable hail accumulation – in some parts reaching 1.5 meters high – on several roads connecting La Cruz to Cañada de Alvarez and Las Caleras.

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.

Just another anomalous and freak hailstorm in Argentina…

  1. Interesting…Why weren’t the leaves of the plants damaged? Why does there not appear to be any damage to the vehicles. The sheer volume of “hail” would have caused such damage, yet there appears to be none. I live in the American midwest, and even our normal snow causes some damage. Hail always does.
    Something is not adding up here.

  2. I did pick it up from the Weather Chanel. Some of the photos look strange, but then again, the hail storm itself is strange… just saying.
