Weird Weather: Hail in Hawaii
For about a week, Hawaii’s famous sunny weather has been replaced with thunderstorms, golf-ball pieces of hail, and the arrival of what weather officials say was the first tornado in four years to hit the islands.
On Friday, a 30-minute hail storm over windward Oahu was “unprecedented,” for Hawaii, said Tom Birchard, senior meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Honolulu. Not only is it highly unusual for hail to fall over Hawaii, but some stones that measured as large as three inches are likely record-breaking, he said.
The weather service estimates the tornado had wind speeds of 60 to 70 miles per hour and stretched 20 yards wide. The twister damaged or destroyed several roofs and toppled trees and power lines.
I wonder if the “Solar Storms” have anything to do with this weird weather. What do you think?
