Violent Storms Spawn Tennis-Ball-Size Hailstones in Rome
A wave of bad weather that came from northern Europe has battered Italy, bringing heavy rains, hail, and strong winds.
The downpours swamped a number of streets, trapping many drivers in their cars; they have also soaked subway stations, forcing the closure of at least six of them, mostly in eastern parts of the city. All stations had reopened by Monday morning, The Local reports.
Water reportedly rose to one meter in Palmiro Togliatti, a street on the outskirts of Rome. The hailstorms also brought tennis-ball-size hailstones.
