Hail in Nevinnomyssk

Description

And if all that water wasn't enough, Nevinnomyssk is again attacked from the sky! In just a few minutes, a short-lived but ferocious hail storm attacks the city with Pigeon-egg-sized hail balls, breaking the windows of over 16,000 houses and pummeling cars parked on the street! The city's drainage system is overwhelmed and traffic is brought to a standstill. The government declares a state of emergency and sets up temporary accommodations to house the victims. However, most residents refuse to evacuate their homes, fearing they'll be looted, and choose to stand guard over their possessions instead.
