Large hail has occurred in Kostanay Oblast in northeastern Kazakhstan in July, a Tengrinews correspondent reports.
The diameter of the hail, according to residents of Komsomol village, was five centimetres - nearly the size of a chicken egg. To prove this, they made photos of a hail ball and a chicken egg together – the dimensions hardly differed.
According to official information, no one was hurt in today's weather anomaly.
