Hail falls in Esteli

(posted April 4, 7:00 a.m.)- Unseasonable rains, strong winds and even a brief hailstorm surprised Nicaraguans living in León, Chinandega and Estelí yesterday afternoon, according to local media reports.

The unexpected weather during a week that’s usually among the driest and hottest of the year caught many people off guard.

The brief hailstorm in Estelí, which reportedly caused slight damage to 17 homes and led to blackouts in some neighborhoods, was another rare event.

But El Nuevo Diario today assures us that the hail was caused by hot-air updrafts into a thunderstorm, and was not an act of God for Holy Week.
