Phenomenal hail accumulations after massive hailstorm hits Guadalajara, Mexico

Phenomenal hail accumulations after massive hailstorm hits Guadalajara, Mexico

An unusually strong hailstorm hit Guadalajara, one of Mexico's most populous cities, on June 30, 2019, dumping massive amounts of hail and trapping vehicles in ice up to 1 and 2 m (3 - 6 feet) high.

"I've never seen such scenes in Guadalajara," Jalisco state governor Enrique Alfaro said. "These are never-before-seen natural phenomena. It's incredible."

Some streets transformed into rivers of dense moving hail, trapping drivers in their vehicles and forcing numerous rescue operations.

While the average accumulations were up 1 m (3 feet) high, at least 6 neighborhoods accumulated 2 m (6 feet) of hail.

The worst affected areas are Rancho Blanco and the Industrial Zone.

Nearly 200 homes and businesses reported damage and at least 50 vehicles were swept away.

There are no reports of casualties, but two people showed 'early signs of hypothermia,' Jalisco Civil Protection office said.
