A severe hailstorm lashed China's capital Beijing on Thursday, June 25, 2020.

Earlier on Thursday, the Beijing Meteorological Observatory issued a yellow warning signal for thunder and lightning. The agency also warned people to take precautions as dispersed hail was expected.

The storm came amid the Dragon Boat Festival, a traditional holiday that occurs near the summer solstice. The hail made rounds on social media as people pointed out that the stones resembled the shape of a virus.

"People are scared because they say the hail looks like the coronavirus," one Twitter user wrote.

Videos and photos on social media show hail scattered on the ground, as well as several properties damaged and shattered.
