Residents in the Nagaur district in Rajasthan, India witnessed unusual weather conditions as the area was slammed by heavy downpour and hailstorms, covering roads and houses almost entirely in ice on Thursday, December 12, 2019. The storms wreaked havoc across the region, causing major damage to crops.

Villages of Chhapri, Maulasar, and Keechak were hit hard that homes were completely covered in sheets of ice and fields turned white. Several animals also sustained injuries.

According to reports, this was the first time that a hailstorm this strong has been observed in the region.

Sri Ganganagar recorded 16 mm (0.6 inches) in 24 hours, while Jaipur saw 10 mm (0.4 inches), 8 mm (0.3) in Churu and Bikaner, and 6 mm (0.2 inches) in Ajmer.
