Russian Hail Storm Looks Like The End Of The World

Tuesday 15th July 2014

This is the terrifying moment golf ball-sized hail stones rained down on sunbathers in Russia.

The locals had been enjoying a heatwave on a beach near Novosibirsk, with temperatures pushing 36 degrees.

But the weather suddenly turned, leaving the sunbathers scampering for cover.

The caption of the YouTube video, uploaded this week, says that the temperature suddently dropped 20 degrees in the matter of a minute.

In the nearby lakeside town of Bredsk, two girls, aged 3 and 4, were killed when a tree fell on the tent they were using to shelter from the hail.
