Freak hailstorm hits Siberia (amazing video)

A freakishly strong hailstorm hit Russia recently (Novosibirsk, to be exact), and someone caught it on video.

The video starts off all fun and games, then people realize how dangerous it really is. Here are people running out of the water laughing.


After about half a minute they’re not laughing any more.


I was caught in a rather large hailstorm in DC once. I couldn’t believe how much the hail hurt. I mean, it HURT. BADLY. I had to put my dry cleaning over my head and run for cover. I’d never experienced hail this large before, never fully appreciated how damaging larger sized hail really is.

It’s a pretty amazing video.
