Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Sao Paulo Roads flooded as storm dumps “mountains” of hailstorm

A ferocious storm dumped more than 10cm of moisture in the form of large hail on Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city.

“Residents in Såo Paulo wondered at the ice balls that decorated their yards and gardens even up to early Monday,” reported AP. “Some told local news media that their children had never seen hail or played with ice before Sunday’s storm.”

However, the storm did very little to raise water levels at Såo Paulo’s reservoirs. The main reservoir has reportedly sunk below 10% of its capacity, the lowest level on record.

Under the circumstances, water rationing could be the only option left for the city of 22 million (metro population) just weeks ahead of the World Cup games in Brazil.

Såo Paulo is the largest city in the southern hemisphere and world’s 7th largest city by population.
