Colombia’s Medellin Turns “Snow” White After Torrential Hail Storm

snowTODAY COLOMBIA — Colombia’s second largest city Medellin stopped being the “city of eternal spring” for an hour on Wednesday after a torrential hail storm covered parts of the city in ice, while causing dozens of emergencies due to floods.

The heavens showed signs of a pending rain storm hours before the actual raining began, but when it did the sky broke it exceeded all expectations.

Within minutes, entire neighborhoods were covered in ice and dozens of viaducts were flooded by literally meters of water.

While no injuries were reported, the city counted major material damage as traffic came to a complete halt, trees were uprooted by sudden winds while citizens, making the most of the municipal emergency, took the opportunity to build the first snowmen in recent history.
