Reports say that five feet of hail has hit in the streets of Guadalajara from an intense storm that damaged homes and washed away cars in an unprecedented event that officials there say they have never seen.
The hail storm struck Sunday in Guadalajara, one of Mexico’s most populous cities, shocking residents and trapping vehicles in a deluge of ice that reports say was up to five feet deep.
Reports said that some roads were completely blocked after hail and heavy rain bombarded Guadalajara, the capital of Jalisco state in western Mexico on Sunday, leaving dozens of drivers trapped.
Piles of hail reached as high as 5 ft in some places, with Rancho Blanco and the Industrial Zone the worst affected areas. Jalisco Governor Enrique Alfaro Ramírez said he had “never seen” such a heavy blitz of hail before.
Some streets were transformed into rivers of dense moving hail and several people had to be rescued from the roofs of their cars. Numerous cars were damaged after being buried under the piles of hail.
Emergency workers and city employees, with assistance from the army, worked throughout the night and morning to clear the city road. Residents said Sunday’s hailstorm was “unprecedented” in the region.
The state governor, Enrique Alfaro, said “I’ve never seen such scenes in Guadalajara.”
“Then we ask ourselves if climate change is real. These are never-before-seen natural phenomenons,” he said. “It’s incredible.”
Guadalajara, located north of Mexico City and with a population of around five million, has had seasonal hail storms as any other place but there is no record of anything so heavy like this.
Its reported at least six neighborhoods in the city outskirts woke up under the deep ice.
Civil Protection personnel and soldiers brought out heavy machinery to clear the roads while children scampered around and played in the ice with each other.
Nearly 200 homes and businesses reported hail damage, and at least 50 vehicles were swept away by the deluge of ice in hilly areas, some buried under piles of ice.
The state Civil Protection office said that initially there were no casualties reported but two people showed “early signs of hypothermia.”
The Biblical prophecies (Luke 21, Revelation 16) foretell how that the weather cycles of earth will intensify until there are events that affect humankind such as great hail that falls upon people.
This event in Mexico is a sign of the Last Days prophecies pointing to the coming fulfillment of the Revelation prophecies where the Bible describes in Revelation 16:21 that a great hail from heaven will fall upon men, each hailstone about the weight of a talent and that the plague will be exceedingly great.
These are signs of the Last Days revealing its time to prepare for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles (Matthew 16:19) who were authorized described how (Acts 2).
This new birth experience brings peace and joy in the Holy Spirit now in this life and eternal life in the world to come. As we are saved from the wrath of the plaques of Revelation prophecy that comes upon the world of disobedience as we are appointed instead to salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.
