HAIL IN OLIVOS!!

This is my hand holding a hailstone I found hidden under some plants in the back of my house one hour after the storm had finished! We saw some as big as a brick! The noise was very frightening and many tiles in my roof are broken...

I had never experienced a storm like this one... to think that a few minutes before my sons and I had been watching the beautiful lightning in the sky...


Do you have any stories to share about this storm?

There were loud noises and you couldn't talk because the knocking ice against the metal of the roof, it was so loud that you couldent talk

Hello Miss Florence,
I can't believe the storm!!!! And the hail was tremendous... it maked a sound that was like rocks falling from the sky! Well, here is the story I am going to tell you: I was getting dressed ready to go to see TV when suddenly rain started to start and then I thought: ``Ha, it is another not so dreadful rain´´ But suddenly a very bad noise started to sound on the roof and the windows and my granny jumped from bed and start to shout: ``Rocks! I mean Hail! Hail is falling!´´(but in spanish) and then I felt very scared so I went into my room and then peeked from the window and saw the most biggest Hail in the world! they were more big than a normal rock! And when they crashed in the window or the streat, it broke and then seperated in three different hails! I wasn't more scared in my life than in that day...
Well here is my version on the ''Hail story''. I will keep an eye out on new posts!

Hello florence:
Yesterday sunday 18 it was my birthday and when the birthday finish I went to do my homework and suddenly it started raining and three seconds later we startes to hear a lot of noise so we went up stairs to see if my brothes windo had broken (his windo is up in the roof) it was not broken but it make a lot of noise so with my sister we went running to the kithchen with my dog that she was very scared. When it stoped raining we went with my sister to walk with the boots and it was fabulose. Today when we were going to school we saw all the street lamps all broken we couldnt belive that. Well thats all. Bye Bye

Hi Miss Florence when the strom came I was ready to go out for dinner.I started hearing a strange noise but as I was ready I opened the door to go to the car and wait for my family.It was a very strong storm with huge hails falling from the sky so I told my family that we wouldn't be able to go.
So we stayed at home watching a movie.

Hi Miss. Florence

This was very strange, it happened in a sudden and only 30:00 minutes dure.
To my House didn´t happened Nothing, but tu a friend of my Brother, when he goes to bed he sees the Sky! Also is strange that look, in My House in Accasuso, all the hailstones weren´t biger than a little Ice Cube. In the School and in all Olivos, all the Houses are Destroyed. It is a Pitty that the weather pronostic didn´t anounced it.

See you.

Hi Miss Florence

I was playing in the computer when suddenly it started raining strongly and few minutes later I heard strong noises I got really scared and we went down staris inmediatly, when the lights got off.We went up stairs to watch threw the window and we saw how the hails were splashing in the pond it was scary. When the hail stopped we went up stairs and we haved a little window looking up and it was all broken, thanks god the cars were okay they were in the garage. Few minutes later we went out to the balcony and we had a metal chair and it had been broken by the hail and we looked threw the balcon and the hole city looked a mess all the rooftops of the houses were distroyed and all cars destroyed. Later my uncle phone home and told us he had been hurt by the hail thanks god he is okey.

Hi Miss Florence
In my house I have in some places a roof that it is of glass and plastic. I have eight and seven of them broke. It was a disaster!!! I was very nervous and scared. A lot of hailstones were inside my house so my sister and I picked them up while my father and my mother were busy taking care if what was happening.
