Freak summer hailstorm engulfs Guadalajara's cars, streets in up to 6 feet of ice
A freak summer hailstorm buried parts of a Mexican city in 5 to 6 feet of ice, engulfing cars on the street in a stunning display.
"I've never seen such scenes in Guadalajara," the state governor, Enrique Alfaro, told Agence France-Presse.
Guadalajara, the capital city of Jalisco with a population of almost a million and a half people, saw at least six of its neighborhoods on the outskirts blanketed in the massive hail accumulation Sunday, AFP reported.
At least 200 buildings and 50 vehicles were damaged by the ice.
No fatalities were reported, but at least two people showed early signs of hypothermia.
According to AFP, although hailstorms aren't uncommon in the summer in Jalisco, nothing of this magnitude had been recorded. Guadalajara is northwest of Mexico City and is about 5,000 feet above sea level.
