Have you ever heard of hailstorms in the desert?
This ice flood footage shows rivers of hail running through the Iraqi desert just after a freak storm. Incredible.
Look how baffled the man looks at the river of hail that flows just besides him.
And it seems that this ice flood was carrying hailstones the size of golf balls.
Irak is known for its hot, dry summers and short, cool winters but not this year the country was hit by torrential rains and ice storms leading to the Iraqi government declaring a state of emergency.
