Freak hail storm strikes World Cup 2014 host city Sao Paulo, Brazil

Hail Formation Alert

A hail storm covers streets in ice in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo which will host the opening match of the football World Cup in less than a month

A storm has brought marble-sized hail to the city of Sao Paulo, leaving some streets coated in white ice in Brazil’s largest city, which will host the opening match of the 2014 World Cup on June 12.

The Centre for Emergency Management said Sunday’s storm broke a dry spell that caused historically low levels at the main dams that supply water to Sao Paulo.

Many Sao Paulo residents struggled to keep their balance on the ice and the storm stranded cars in some neighbourhoods.

Sunday’s game between Corinthians and Figueirense at the Itaquerao Stadium, which will host the first match of the World Cup, was also affected by the rain and hail storms.
