via Over 1 500 houses damaged, farms devastated as hailstorm hits northern Vietnam

Hailstorms and strong winds hit Vietnam’s northern mountainous region on the evening of April 14, 2018, damaging houses and destroying crops. The storms have left many without a roof over their heads and destroyed crops that were ready for harvest.

In the northeastern province of Bac Kan, authorities said that over 1 000 houses had been damaged in an hour-long hailstorm. It bombarded three districts with hailstones of up to 3 cm (1.2 inches) in diameter, the size of a grape, according to local media.
