  • Hail the size of grapefruit was seen in Alberta, Canada during a hasty storm that left vehicle windows shattered
  • Gibran Marquez shared a video of the moments when hail flew through the vehicle of the car he was riding in on a major Canada highway 
  • Windows are seen breaking as people scream in the distance as the storm continues for minutes 

Horrific footage shows the moment when drivers on a major Canada highway were slammed with hail the size of golf balls on Monday.

Gibran Marquez was traveling on a central Alberta highway with two others when the trio had to pull over as their vehicle was hit with hail.

Marquez posted the video of the storm on Twitter that showed the passengers pulled over on the highway and ducking while chunks of hail break the car windows.

The video was captioned, ‘Last night 5km south of gasoline alley, horrible 17 minutes as it showcased the car windows breaking as hail hit the surface.

‘Put the backpack on your left,’ Marquez can be heard saying as he passes the driver the bag as a shield from the breaking windows.

The driver is shielding a female passenger from the breaking windshield in his arms as hail passes through the cracks of the window. People outside are heard screaming as the storm continues.

Coincidentally, the weather on Monday in some parts of Alberta was a high of 80 F and a low of 56 F, according to The Weather Channel.

Marquez posted another video of the moments when the hail began hitting the car.

‘Oh my god,’ the female passenger screams as balls of hail begin to slowly break the windshield.

Meanwhile, Marquez shows the back window of the vehicle partially broken.

‘I had to get footage of this.. the world needs to see how serious these storms can get in a matter of seconds,’ Marquez wrote in response to a commenter.

Marquez further claimed that some suffered from cuts, bruises, and a mild concussion. A photo of the female passenger being treated by a firefighter was shared as a rainbow peaked in the background.

In some parts of Alberta, hail the size of grapefruit were reported. The NHP Field Project took a photo of one of the hail balls right by a ruler. 

Meanwhile, another passenger who was driving in Alberta in the city of Markerville also showed off a chunk of hail she picked up from the storm. 

‘I can’t even,’ Mhairi wrote on Twitter. ‘I panic took this without putting it in the ruler properly. Tennis balls when it was NW of Markerville 17:50. They’re still coming down. Stay clear.’  

Users scattered Twitter sharing photos of their experiences with the hashtag, ‘abstorm.’ 

A storm chaser, T.L. Carmody, shared a photo of family’s car that was thrashed in the middle of the hail storm.

‘Met a very shaken up family at [the] McDonald’s in Innisfail who got caught in the hail,’ T.L. Carmody wrote. ‘Every one is ok, and they were very nice to let me take photos.’ 

Carmody posted the photo of the red vehicle that was dented and smashed by the massive ice blocks.
