Video Shows Huge Hailstones Pelting Down In Savage Storm

Video has appeared showing giant hail stones pounding down Spain during a savage summer storm. The sound of the storm is maddening.


Pieces of ice the size of golf balls hammered down during the freak downfall which was captured on camera in the north of the country.

Video shows the hail stones coming down with such force that they bounce back up off the ground.

The clip picks up the sound of the hailstones pounding the roof of one building and thudding into the ground outside

It is unknown whether the storm, which struck on July 13, caused any injuries.

The crazy conditions were the latest to hit Spain this month.

Footage appeared of a hail storm hitting the town of Almazan, just outside the city of Soria, also in northern Spain.

It was so strong that emergency crews needed snow ploughs to clear the streets.

Another storm this month saw hail lash down on Murcia in southern Spain.

Hail falls after drops of water are continuously taken up and down through cumulonimbus clouds. When the drops go to the top of the cloud, they freeze.

Cumulonimbus clouds can grow especially large during summer when hot sun heats the ground causing warm air to rise.

Updraughts in thunderclouds are big and can keep hailstones for a long time, meaning they can get larger and larger by becoming coated with more and more ice, according to the Met Office.

Eventually, when they become too big for the cloud to hold, they fall to earth as balls of ice.
