Freak Hailstorm Hits Beachgoers In Russia

Sunbathers in the Russian city of Novosibrisk were forced to run for cover when a sudden temperature drop from 41 to 22 degrees celsius caused a large hail storm.  Visitors to a beach in Novosibirsk, Russia, were caught by surprise when a sudden storm swept in, dropping hail stones the size of golf balls. In a video uploaded to YouTube, a sunbather captured the transition from 41 degree heat to a raging hail storm – all in a matter of minutes. Some people can be seen screaming and running for the cover of beach umbrellas as the hail storm intensifies, while some chose to stay in the water and one brave person sheltered under their beach towel.
