Yesterday, hail also appeared in Huong Lam and Dong Son communes of the mountainous district A Luoi, Thua Thien Hue, the largest stone size is 2-3 cm. Hail and whirlwind caused damage to many areas of corn and rice of people.

The phenomenon of hail occurs because convection clouds develop strongly when the weather is hot before. This causes the air to move upward with hot, humid clouds. The higher the clouds rise, the higher the temperature is from 0 degrees Celsius or less, causing the water vapor to condense and freeze (like ice) forming ice particles.

This type of weather often occurs in the North and North Central region in the months of April, April and November 10, when the weather changes from cold to hot and vice versa.
