Severe Hailstorm Hits West Dholai, Causing Destruction and Disruption

A severe hailstorm struck the region of West Dholai, causing significant damage to homes, shops, and infrastructure. The storm, which unleashed hailstones weighing up to 2-3 kilograms, was unprecedented and caught residents off guard. The heavy hailstorm occurred late in the afternoon, leading to chaos as large hailstones pummeled the area.

Houses in the affected region suffered extensive damage, with roofs being punctured and windows shattered. Many homes faced structural damage due to the force and size of the hailstones. The local market area was also severely affected, with shopfronts damaged and goods destroyed.

Residents recounted their terrifying experiences as the hailstorm struck. One local resident, Rajesh Das, described the scene: "It was like a barrage of stones raining down. We couldn't do anything except try to find shelter and wait for it to pass." Many people were forced to take cover in their homes or nearby buildings to avoid the hazardous hail.

Emergency services quickly responded to the scene, working to clear debris and assist those affected. Local authorities are assessing the full extent of the damage and have urged residents to stay indoors as cleanup efforts continue.

The hailstorm also caused damage to crops in nearby fields, impacting local farmers who rely on agriculture for their livelihood. Initial reports suggest that the storm may have lasting effects on the region's agricultural production.

Despite the severity of the storm, there have been no immediate reports of serious injuries or fatalities. However, the community faces a long road to recovery as they work to repair the damage and rebuild their homes and businesses.

Meteorologists are studying the unusual hailstorm to better understand its cause and to provide improved warnings in the future. In the meantime, local authorities have advised residents to remain vigilant for any further weather warnings and to take necessary precautions.
