極端天氣:雹暴襲英國兩郡,15分鐘變成冰天雪地!24小時下該月 1.5倍雨量!

  英國康沃爾郡(Cornwall)及德文郡(Devon)在周五(13年 9月 6)傍晚時份下了一場突如其來的大雹暴,這場雹暴雖然僅持續了大約 15分鐘,但已經令當地變成一片冰天雪地,令居民大為震驚。

  今年英國的天氣反覆不定,在落雹暴之的一天,當地還享受着高達攝氏 30度的陽光夏日,想不到一日後突然「變天」。

  同日早上廣泛地區亦突然下大雨,北約克郡(North Yorkshire)的雨量在 24小時內達75毫米,差不多等於當地過往 9月雨量的 1.5倍;而在克利卡蘭(Cleveland),有當地居民稱大雨令附近兩條河流氾濫,據稱一座大橋被洪水沖塌,另有 2架車被沖走。
