Massive hailstorm surprises Spanish province
Last night the village of Almazan, a Spanish city in the Castilla y Leon Province, were surprised by a freak heavy hailstorm which lasted almost 45 minutes and deposited a metre of hailstones. The storm caused flooding in local businesses, homes, and garages, severely affecting traffic.
Local police, the Civil Guard, neighbours, and firefighters worked in the area with snowploughs to help clean up the streets. Fourteen Spanish provinces in central and northern Spain are also on alert, with storms and heavy rain being forecast.
