In a video going viral on social media, terrible scenes of severe hailstorm can be seen. Users are claiming about this video that this shadid hailstorm took place in Karnal, Haryana.
A user named India Awaaz captioned on Facebook, “Due to the changing #मौसम(Climate), the rain and the big hailstorm, something like this was seen on the road in Nilokhedi in Karnal, Haryana. ” In this video, there is such a severe hail that passers-by stop their cars on the road and stop.
We did a reverse search of some frames of this video on the Internet and we found that these videos were uploaded on a German channel’s verified YouTube in July 2017 with the caption, “Hailstorm in Istanbul – which broke the car’s windows”-(Hindi translation).
At the same time, we also received a tweet from a verified Twitter account called Kai Diekmann in July 2017. The same video has been posted in this tweet.
