Weather extremes are becoming the new normal. Last examples? Biblical hailstorms have killed more than 50 people over the last two days in India.
As reported by Uni India, a total of 44 people have died and more than 100 others were injured in 18 districts, after a heavy hail storm struck several parts of Uttar Pradesh on April 12, 2018. Farmer land was also destroyed. According to official news, the district of Agra was the most heavily hit with 15 deaths and 37 injured.
Here a video showing the aftermath of the storm in Agra:
Just a day before, on April 11, 2018 another hailstorm killed 17 people – a majority of children -and injured plenty of others in Rajasthan on Wednesday evening. The severe hail affected train transportation and flooded the main cities in the area, bringing traffic to a standstill for hours. Again crops have been destroyed by this freak weather phenomenon.
And these harsch weather conditions have continued until today and may only stop during the night.
And I think this escalation in anomalous and powerful storms is not going to stop for a while. Have a prayer for all of these poor guys getting giant baseball hailstones on their heads… And be prepared in your area!
