Freak hail storm causes chaos in Columbia


Breaking Storm News
Columbia, S.A.
A huge and unexpected hail storm has hit Colombia in South America, causing chaos in the country's capital, Bogota.

Within minutes, roads were completely blocked and more than 100 people got stuck in cars and buses in the ice.

No-one was hurt, but because no-one had expected the icy conditions they didn't have warm clothes on and so some had to be treated for exposure to the cold.

There was more trouble as the ice began to melt, turning roads into icy rivers of slush.

Officials said it was the strongest hail storm the city had ever seen.
