Apocalyptic Hail Storm Caught On Camera: VIDEO

Freak hail storm in siberia

A video captured on a beach in Novosibirsk, Siberia, looks like an apocalyptic scene from The Day After Tomorrow.

People are seen enjoying a sunny day day at the beach before the 99F weather instantly turns into a massive hailstorm.

A woman later told The Siberian Times:

"My husband was protecting my young daughter but his back was exposed to the hailstones and he has bruising all over it"

Watch the footage of the freak storm, AFTER THE JUMP...

  5. This is hardly a freak occurrence. We had one here in MN a few years ago. It was a hot, humid day and it came out if nowhere. It's scary, too. When hail rips through it tears the leaves off of trees so when the wind picks up there's a bunch of debris flying around and it makes you think a tornado is coming. Also, whenever it is hot and humid the weather is considered "unstable" and it can change in a second.

  6. they get a lot of action in Siberia, first the meteor and now hail, all the more reason not to go there. Keep it up Putin.

  7. Not uncommon. Any time you have hail fall in water it looks much worse because the splashes show each impact, which you don't see when the stones hit land.

  8. Looks like God is upset with the Russians for their treatment of LGBT people...

  9. I know, let's protect ourselves under a towel.

  10. Yikes! Indeed, "apocalyptic" is not hyperbolic! Somehow did not look like 99F right prior, too much motion vs. languid, but hard to tell.

  11. 'If we die, I love you,' says one bather struck by bullet-like giant hail stones.

    'If we don't, not so much...'

  12. Clearly, God Hates Siberia.

  14. The weather is like an 18 year old boyfriend, not to trusted.

  15. I can't believe how much garbage is scattered all over that beach, even before the wind kicks up. Disgusting.

  16. We get those often in Texas. They tend to happen in the spring here (during tornado season). We had an especially bad one back in March. Some of the hail was big this time (though not where I live where it didn't get above golfball size).

  17. I'm rooting for the hail.

    Posted by: Merv | Jul 14, 2014 11:54:55 AM

  18. Um, anybody bothered by the fact that it was 99 degrees Fahrenheit in Siberia?

    Posted by: jamal49 | Jul 14, 2014 11:57:05 AM

  19. Why not? Siberia has summer too.

  20. Even their BEACHES are depressing. Poor Russkies!

  21. It's god's retribution for all those day swim suits the men are wearing....

  22. Novosibirsk is a fun town. It has hot summers and super cold winters. Much friendlier than the areas to the west of the Urals.

  23. Fake.

  24. god hates russia.

  25. It's just a hail storm...happens all the time to places outside of the coasts. Try one that you actually have to shovel (or wait to melt).

    And man, that beach is depressing. Is that grass growing in the "sand"?
