    Extreme hail storm hits South Africa turning streets into icy rivers



    The South African province of Gauteng was hit by a powerful storm with downpours and heavy hail on Friday, February 26. In the town of Benoni, east of Johannesburg, hail completely covered the streets, turning them into icy rivers.

    The storm runoff carried ice crumbs along the roadway, leading to local floods. The Johannesburg Emergency Service (EMS) and the Ekurhuleni Municipality (DEMS) were on high alert.

    In Alberton, several buildings were flooded, including schools and a hospital. Water poured into the corridors of the medical facility, where patients had to be transferred to a safer place.

    I saw an article about the currents in the ocean slowing down, which does always cause more severe weather. And when the currents slow they continue to slow until something major speeds them up again.

    It also causes more extreme cold winters, less warm water circulating...I wonder if the current pole shift is playing a part in causing this slow down along with the north and south ice melts...

    Weakest Gulf Stream in 1,000 years could bring more 'extreme' winters to UK and Europe, says study

    That's the slowest moving lightning I've ever seen. I don't recall ever seeing it come from the ground in branches like that, maybe one bolt.
