Daijiworld Media Network - Madikeri

Madikeri, Feb 19: Several parts of Kodagu witnessed hailstones along with rains on Friday, February 19.

The shift in weather also brought strong winds impacting the standing crops, locals were left astonished at the number of hailstones that spread across different parts of the district.

Hailstones were found on roads, coffee estates, the roof of the houses, areca nut and coconut plantations at Mullur, Nidtha, Ankanahalli, Gudugalale etc. 

Hail is a form of precipitation or water in the atmosphere. This weather phenomenon is formed when drops of water freeze together in the cold upper regions of thunderstorm clouds. The chunks of ice so formed are referred to as hailstones. Most hailstones measure between 5 millimetres and 15 centimetres in diameter and can be round or jagged.

    Nature is trying to treat us well just because we allowed it to breathe for five months. I think such lockdown should happen every year. Because we must not leave nature behind in the course of development. We should afford respective loss. A break.

    This unexpected change in weather has caused hailstones along with rain. It is nature and people over there have to face it whether you like it or not. This must have been a surprise for the people in Kodagu and neighboring areas. But unfortunately crops were damaged. I still remember the first snowfall when me, my wife, daughter, and son saw the snow for the first time on Nov. 19, 1987. It was fun.
