Massive hailstorm claims 4 lives in Mexico
A massive hailstorm that hit Mexico state on the night of August 30, 2015, has claimed 4 lives, and caused extensive damage across the affected areas, the local authorities reported.
The streets of Coacalco have been covered with hail after an intense storm swept the municipalities of Coacalco, Ecatepec and Tlalnepantla in Mexico state.
An unusually severe hailstorm has caused deaths of a 45-day old baby and two homeless people, according to the Mexico Governor Eruviel Avila. The storm started during the night of August 30, and by the morning of August 31, huge piles of hail balls were blocking the streets across the Coacalco, Tultitlan and Ecatepec towns.

53 mm (2 inches) of precipitation has fallen in only 50 minutes across the most severely affected towns of the region, which is three times above the municipalities ability to drain.
100 houses suffered some amount of damage, 35 trees and 2 billboards have been damaged by the hailstorm while the rising waters have carried vehicles and streetlights across the inundated areas.
The area known as Cerro del Caracol, in Lomas de Coacalco, was hit the highest by the hailstorm. The ice layer on some streets was over one meter (3.3 feet) high.
