Holy Storm – Holy Hail! Major Rain, Thunder, Lightening, Wind & Hail Storm Blasts Doha!

Today has been so thrilling as a incredible thunder, lightening, rain, wind and hail storm blast across Doha!

Here is a video where I’m filming the rain and it starts to hail!  I first think it’s rocks blowing off the roof – but I think to myself…how can there be rocks on the roof….when I see it is actually hail!!

Hail that blew in while I had the screen door opened to take video!!


Here are pictures during the storm:

After the worst of the storm moved off, I walked around the compound to see if any damage had happened.  Thankfully only a few trees lost some branches!fullsizeoutput_7987fullsizeoutput_7989fullsizeoutput_7988

The storm was so bad, that school has been canceled tomorrow for clean-up and repair!!!  A day off!!!  Woohoo!!!

According to a rain radar, more rain is on the way!!
