Heavy thunderstorms engulfed the Alpine and pre-Alpine areas on June 2-3, 2020, mainly affecting Lombardy, Italy.
A very intense storm system hit the northern area of the region, in particular between the provinces of Lecco, Brescia, and Bergamo.
In Bergamo, the most affected area, there was so much hail that cars were stucked and people were forced to shovel.
Locally the hail has also reached considerable dimensions; up to 6 centimeters (2.4 inches) wide.
Many residents in the Lecco area, in particular between Civate and Valmadrera, reported damaged cars, roofs and windows.
