I experienced this when I was in Bangalore last year in May/June, near Jeevan Bheema Nagar. Some of the ice pieces were about the size of small lemons : fortunately no damage to the car. The hailstones were followed by a heavy downpour.

It's a dry day (elections tomorrow) here in Goa, and hot as a tandoor outdoors. Wish we had some of those hailstones.

This depends on the size of ice falling from the sky.

Not my type. Not my Type.

I love my beauty as it is. Dimples might look good on a pretty human face, but...

And I pray to god that no dimples are made on my beauty by natural calamities

This website seems to be pretty accurate in rainfall predictions. It was predicted as Rain and Thunderstorm for yesterday and Today. Check it out:

What a welcome change! I never understood the use of rains in the evenings! It makes more sense in the hot afternoons.

Hail stones only in certain places, But was pelting dogs and cats all over Bengaluru.

Got my A/C ready in my M-800 to beat the summer heat, but damn, its always raining since 3 days, its functioning more like a de-fogger now

envious of the Hail storm for Bangy Boys...Its scorching 40 degrees + in Hyd..no sign of rain or ice cubes.
But one should be careful as the Hail storm can damage windscreens and roofs of the cars.
