Guadalajara, Mexico gets buried in more than three feet of hail

GUADALAJARA, Mex. (NBC NEWS) – A freak summer hail storm in Guadalajara, Mexico, submerged cars and damaged hundreds of houses Sunday morning, officials said.

Jalisco state’s civil defense agency began working at dawn to clear ice from the streets, said Jalisco Gov. Enrique Alfaro. Photos posted by the agency showed cars nearly fully covered in hail, and The Associated Press reported that hundreds of homes were damaged.

The hail also blocked drainage systems, which led to severe flooding in some parts of the city.

Alfaro said more than 3 feet of hail had fallen, adding that he had never seen anything like it.
