At least six municipalities in Mexico are covered with two-meter-thick grain hail. Guadalajara is also affected, one of the most populated cities in the country. It is the first time that such storms have occurred in the region.

“I’ve never seen such scenes in Guadalajara,” said Enrique Alfaro, Jalisco state governor, to the British newspaper The Guardian. “Some people still wonder if climate change is real. These natural phenomena have never been seen before. That’s incredible. ”

Guadalajara is located north of Mexico City and has around five million people living there. The last few days it was around thirty degrees. Hailstorms are more common in the area, but storms of that caliber have never been observed before.

At least six neighborhoods in the area are now covered with an ice layer up to two meters high. The army and civil protection went to the city to clean up the giant hail balls. Around 200 households and local businesses were affected and at least 50 vehicles were towed away. There are no deaths for the time being, but two people are said to be slightly supercooled.
