Hail-elujah!

While many of us were grappling with the summer heat on Saturday, residents of St Elizabeth were being pleasantly surprised by hail in the parish.

“It’s hailing in Black River! Wow, it just a fall,” one enthusiastic resident of that St Elizabeth town could be heard saying in a video shared with Loop News.

“Look at the mat, pure ice, oh my God!” she observed, pointing to hailstones at her doorstep.

The hailstones rained down on the parish amid a weather system which brought scattered showers and thunderstorms across sections of central and western parishes over the weekend.

Hail storms are not unusual in Jamaica.
