Car wrecked by a storm in Texas
Hail that falls in areas of Texas reaches 13 cm in diameter
There is a lot of flooding and damage in several states from the storms
In the coming days the US will continue to be at risk of tornadoes and destructive storms
Car windows, house windows and even a roof. The hail that has fallen on in a state of Texas has been destructive, with the size of a baseball, according to some witnesses. The storms are being extraordinary.
In the following image, a woman living in Austin, the capital of Texas, shows a hail ball that barely fits in her hand. It measures about 13 centimeters.
In Spain we rarely see hail like this, although there was a memorable storm in 2017 that released enough precipitation to dent cars, as we see below.
Much of the United States is experiencing tornadoes and severe storms that are causing damage and flooding. So far, it appears that the most affected states have been Texas and Oklahoma, according to reports, although thunderstorms would have struck in Mississippi, and in Georgia a driver was killed when a tree fell on his car. Especially in the San Antonio region, very close to Austin, the car alarms did not stop ringing last week.
These are some of the images that have been repeated in these states:
Unfortunately, this is what a lot of cars look like in the uncovered parking lot of the Westhouse Apts in Fort Worth, near Keller.
Hard to see, but in addition to the damaged windshield, there are dents from the hail, too.
