Hail Storm!

This video was captured using my digital cam!

Early evening, I was with my wife and baby, plus a couple of friends, and we were riding a small shuttle bus on our way to a mall, when a fierce hail storm met us on the way!

It started out as a sand storm and we noticed that the streets became full of dust. It was followed by rain, then suddenly we heard loud noises coming from the roof of the bus and from our windows. There were some hails like pieces of ice coming from the sky! They were like the size of a cashew nut!

The wind started to become strong and we saw some trees starting to fall down. Our bus stopped on the side as we waited for the hail storm to finish. It was not my first time to experience hail storms, but it was my first time to experience it while I was on the streets, with my wife and baby. I feared that the window glasses would get broken, or worst, the whole bus would turn over because of the strong wind.

Luckily, the storm didn’t get any worst, and we continued our journey when it was safer to move. We reached our destination safely. It was one experience to remember.

    You’re so lucky hindi malalaki yung hail. Around two years ago we were surprised to experience around 2 minutes of hail here in a small part of Las Pinas, I got scared because they were half the size of my fist. A few windows got cracked then it stopped. When I watched the news, small part lang yata ng Las Pinas yung nagkaroon ng ganun.

    Were those trees uprooted during the hailstorm? Grabe naman..
