“I’ve never seen such scenes,” the state governor said.

What the hail?

One of Mexico’s most populous cities got hit with a freak summer hailstorm on Sunday, burying dozens of cars and damaging hundreds of homes.

The city had been enjoying balmy temperatures of more than 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) before the sudden storm pelted the city of around 5 million people with hail — frozen precipitation that forms balls or irregular lumps of ice — that piled between three to five feet in some places, according to varying reports.
