Ferocious hailstorm wreaks havoc in Harbin, China

A ferocious hail and rainstorm hit the city of Harbin, the capital of northeast China's Heilongjiang Province on June 12, 2016, wreaking havoc on the streets and disrupting traffic.

The sudden onslaught congested sewers and turned roads into rivers, forcing drivers and passengers to abandon their vehicles in a bid to escape rising flood waters. Coin-sized hailstone pellets pelted Harbin for some 10 minutes before a heavy rainstorm moved in.

There have been no reports of casualties.
