Severe hailstorm hits Mersin, Turkey, producing huge hail accumulations

An isolated severe supercell passed over parts of southern Turkey on Sunday, November 19, 2017, dumping heavy rain and large hailstones, and producing enormous hail accumulations in the port city of Mersin, on the Mediterranean coast.

The rain started falling in the city center around 12:00 local time and soon turned into a full-blown severe thunderstorm, catching drivers unprepared and forcing residents to seek shelter.

Large hail covered roofs of buildings and cars while heavy rain flooded buildings and roads, causing traffic chaos, local media reported.

Authorities said huge hailstones damaged numerous vehicles.

Wow. Did Turkey drop our petro
dollar or sumthin?
Globalists seem to b aiming high
physics weather manipulation at
them lately, huh?
What the vatican calls climate change (to deceive the dim) is nothing less than geoengineered
weather warfare to hasten the u.n. nwo depop. agenda.
Do research on "d.e.w. used in
norCal. fires"*
Don't underestimate the Enemy.
