Argentine capital Buenos Aires at noon shrouded darkness. The normally sunny city fell clouds. Hailstones the size of golf balls broke through the roofs of houses. Roads once formed huge traffic jams, and people were afraid to go out. Several bystanders were hospitalized with head injuries of moderate severity.
Hail also broke the crops of sunflowers — one of the most important plants for the Argentine economy. This country — one of the largest exporters of sunflower oil in the world, like the TV channel "Russia-24".
