Watch: Hail storm slams several towns in Mexico

A strong hail surprised the residents of several districts in Mexico City (CDMX) on Wednesday afternoon, March 14 resulting in streets and avenues covered in white hailstones.

In the colonies of Acapotzalco, Miguel Hidalgo and Cuauhtémoc, the hail made many people take refuge, while the traffic stopped at the beginning of the afternoon peak hour.

The authorities decreed the yellow alert for hail and rain, the latter present in at least six delegations of the CDMX.
