We all know that hailstorms can get pretty freaky, pretty fast. The weather is so unpredictable, you can never be too sure of the outcome. Hail can happen everywhere, but it is closely related to thunderstorms. Basically, what happens is that a draft of air carrying water particles rises high up in the atmosphere and depending on the altitude, a different size of hail is created. The hail is a spherically shaped water droplet that has frozen into ice, and the higher the altitude and the lower the temperature, the bigger these spheres get.

Hail falls the moment the clouds can’t hold those icy spheres anymore. This is why hailstorms are so dangerous. They can happen in a matter of seconds and leave the whole ground devastated. They are the farmer’s worst nightmare and they could destroy thousands of tonnes of fruits and vegetables on a year basis.

This video shows us a time lapse of a hailstorm happening in Texas caught through the dashboard camera lens of one driver. The footage shows the terrifying grey clouds rolling closer to the vehicle until the visibility is so low, it’s hard to see the brake lights from the car in the front.
