    Hail Floods the Streets in Spain

    Falling autumn leaves clogged storm drains, complicating the flooding.

    Hail flooded the streets of a town in northeast Spain on Wednesday. The firefighters and police in Soria, Span, worked to control the impact of the downpour and hail. Falling autumn leaves clogged storm drains, complicating the flooding.
    AccuWeather meteorologist Jim Andrews said that this "is a classic hailstorm, accompanied by torrential rain. Streets were literally flowing with water (and hailstones) within 2-3 minutes. The trigger for the storms was a cold front. Soria is fairly high (3,500 feet or so), being located along a ridge of highlands. These highlands seem to have helped to focus rain/thunderstorms in the area."
