WATCH: Hail pelts beachgoers in Russia


TORONTO – Beachgoers in Novosibirsk, Russia got a nasty surprise Saturday when they were pelted by golf ball size hail after a freak storm suddenly moved in.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, which has since gone viral, you can see people on the beach gathering their things after the sky turns dark and it looks like it might rain.

The weather quickly takes a turn for the worst and people start screaming and running for cover as hail beats down on them.

There were no injuries reported at the beach, but according to The Telegraph local media reported that two children in town were killed by a tree that was knocked over in the storm and another was in intensive care.
