Intense hailstorms sweep through Saudi Arabia
Intense hailstorms and heavy rain lashed parts of Saudi Arabia over the past couple of days, completely covering desert sand in Hail city and Asir region.
Meteorologists at the Jordan-based ArabiaWeather network said that the intense hailstorm hit Hail on Saturday afternoon, April 17, with temperatures around 28 °C (82.4 °F).
According to the Saudi National Centre for Meteorology, heavy thunderstorms and hailstorms, accompanied by snowfall, also took place in several cities in Asir, including Abha, Khamis Mushait, Tanuma and Al Namas.
Saudi Arabia's Civil Defense called on everyone to remain vigilant as more spring thunderstorms are expected in some regions of the Kingdom.
