Rare hailstone hits Shangri-La in summer

Hailstones hit part of the Shangri-La County in China's Yunnan Province, photo from

A rare hailstone hit part of the Shangri-La, a Tibetan-inhabited county in China's Yunnan Province at 6:00 pm of July 31 with a thickness of over 10 cm on the road surface.

Quite different, there is no hailstone but heavy rain in the Shangri-La County, some 15 kilometers away from the hailstone-hit area.

Statistics show that in summer it is unlikely to have such a heavy hailstone in Shangri-La.
