Five Feet Of Hail In 15 Minutes In Cordoba Province, Argentina



An intense storm accompanied by strong winds and extreme amounts of hail hit the province of Cordoba, central Argentina on Thursday afternoon, October 26, 2017, causing extensive infrastructural and agricultural damage. The worst affected were the cities of Rio Tercero, Almafuerte, Berrotaran, Embalse and especially the area around La Cruz.

About 70 mm (2.75 inches) of rain was recorded in La Cruz (population 3 000) and an impressive amount of hail, La Nacion reports. "Everything was over in just 15 minutes. More than 1.5 m (4.9 feet) of hail accumulated, leaving route E-21 completely cut."

Fire Chief Martin Bustos said meteorologists issued alerts before the storm hit but they 'never' imagined such an impressive phenomenon. Bustos said they worked for hours to free the cars trapped on roads and make the roads passable again. The mayor of La Cruz, Mauricio Jaime, said the city received between 50 and 70 mm (1.96 - 2.75 inches) of rain and added that although the hailstones were not large, the amount was impressive.

EDIT

One person was injured in neighboring Embalse. According to La Voz, a woman was driving her motorcycle near Embalse when the storm hit. She took shelter under a tree and got stuck in a large amount of hail. She was eventually rescued and treated for hypothermia.
