A video purporting to be from Jammu and Kashmir in India has been circulated, depicting a strong hailstorm.

What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The viral footage originates from Guangdong and Guangxi provinces in China, where reports of tornadoes, heavy rains, and hailstorms have been made.India is not involved in this at all. We visited news.italy24, which published an article on this incident on April 28, 2024 with the headline “Blocks of hail the size of footballs have fallen in China’s Guangxi region”. Much of southern China had to deal with torrential rains that caused floods and tens of thousands of evacuations. A tornado was reported in Hong Kong while in Guangdong, which has a population of around 127 million inhabitants (more than double that of Italy), the rain fell for days and days practically without stopping.

@irene_makarenko tweeted about this by adding “Terrible #tornado with giant hail in #Guangxi province, neighboring Guangdong province. Only by informing humanity about climate crisis and creating a public demand for the collaboration of scientists can we survive the escalating natural disasters! #Weather” on April 29, 2024.

@yangyubin1998 tweeted “Hail in Guangdong and Guangxi, China these two days” on April 27, 2024.
