The spectacular mammatus clouds immortalized yesterday in Sicily have been followed, unfortunately, by a rather violent weather phenomenon.

After enjoying temperatures reaching 20°C during the day, the air cooled suddenly and a violent storm has dumped over half a meter of hail in Roccalumera, Messina during the night.

Today, hail is still present in abundance, blocking trains and closing roads.
The extreme hailstorm blocked several roads in the city.
Homes and businesses damage have been reported due to the heavy hail accumulation on roofs and windows.
