(Worthy News) – On Sunday a Mexican city was deluged in hail and ice, leaving cars buried beneath 5 feet of the frozen substance and leading the state governor to exclaim he had never seen anything like it.
Temperatures had been upwards of 90 degrees for several days in Guadalajara when, seemingly out of nowhere, the storm swept in and completely covered the town in ice, washing away 50 vehicles and damaging 200 homes and businesses.
“Most important of all, there is no record of injured people or human losses so far,” said Jalisco state governor Enrique Alfaro, who added that the storm surpassed even the typically extreme weather Guadalajara residents were used to due to the western Mexican city’s position 5,100 feet above sea level.
The storm comes simultaneous to a heat wave in Europe that has caused wildfires in Spain and led France Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic to record their highest temperatures on record for June, though not so far rivaling 2003’s temperature spike on the continent that saw 70,000 mostly elderly Europeans perish in heat-related deaths.
Despite no casualties having been reported so far in Guadalajara, the state Civil Protection office said that two people were suffering from “early signs of hypothermia.”
