Thunderstorms leave 12 people dead, hailstorms destroy crops in Uttar Pradesh, India

Series of severe weather events hit plains and hills of North India over the past couple of days, producing heavy rain, snow, hailstorms and thundershowers.

Lightning strikes in Uttar Pradesh killed 12 people on February 13, including 4 school children. In addition, 35 school kids had a narrow death escape as lightning strike damaged walls and roof of a school in Soro, Kasganj.

Intense rains and hailstorms in Delhi led to the diversion of 6 flights and numerous delays.

Hailstorm wreaked havoc over crops across Uttar Pradesh, just several days after a severe hailstorm hit its Moradabad district on February 7. The heavy rains followed by hailstorm left farms completely drenched in water that day and farmers in distress as they only managed to save part of their crops.

ISAIAH 14:22 The day for the calling of the cedar trees is coming. Perhaps mid MAY 21ST-22 FOR THE PLANTING OF THEM ALL ON THE JUBILEE YEAR calendar that is the true first of Spring or MAY 18 -19TH on the world's calendar. TO BAD FOR THE WORLD who said that THEIR IS KNOW GOD! I DO NOT FEEL SHAME FOR MY SINS.
