Russian hailstorm sends beachgoers running for their lives

Attention: open in a new window. PrintE-mail

An unbelievable scene unfolded over a Siberian beach on Saturday, July 12. A vicious cold front swept across the beach and unsuspecting bathers. Temperatures dropped more than 30 degrees in minutes. A hailstorm sent people running for their lives and ducking for cover. The hail was so strong it turned the beach into a near lunar landscape.

By the time it was over, the beach was empty, and temperatures had dropped from more than 40 degrees Celsius to 21 degrees C. That's more than 100 degrees Fahrenheit to around 70 degrees in about the time you can grab a beach towel and run back to your Lada.
