An intense hailstorm swept through the municipality of Formosa in northern Argentina late Wednesday afternoon, October 25, 2017, causing severe damage.
More than 1 000 buildings were damaged as well as numerous trees and cars after the storm dumped hailstones up to 8 cm (3.14 inches) in diameter, our friends at De Olho No Tempo Meteorologia report.
Boats that traveled along the Paraguay River also sustained damages, mainly on the Argentine side. In the rural area, plantations were completely destroyed, including newly germinated soybeans.
On the same day, heavy rainfall accompanied by large hail also hit central province of Cordoba.
