A hailstorm Tuesday turned streets in the city of Puebla, Mexico, into a winter wonderland.
Photos submitted to The Weather Channel Facebook page by Carmen Salyastep Sanchez shows streets covered in accumulated, small hail. According to El Universal.mx, the city’s municipal department of civil protection urged residents to avoid driving, if possible.
The combination of hail and torrential rain trapped vehicles in an icy, slushy mess up to several feet deep, according to Sanchez’s photos. The hardest hit areas of the city were the north and east sides, as well as the city center. Puebla is about 80 miles east-southeast of Mexico City.
Hailstorms are not uncommon in Mexico. The city of Puebla – population of about 2.6 million – is situated at an elevation of about 7,000 feet, or just over 1,700 feet higher than Denver, a city known for hailstorms. This extra elevation means falling hailstones have less warm air to fall through to melt before reaching the ground, even in July.
