Weird Weather

A few days after I arrived in Bogota, the first ever tornado swept through the outskirts of the city. No one was hurt, but it was a freak occurrence.



Yesterday was just as odd as the worst hailstorm in 30 years left cars floated or submerged among pieces of ice, basements flooded, and ceilings leaky. This storm was most powerful in the center of the city, on Calle 26 and Avenida Caracas. In my neighborhood it just rained a lot with a little hail mixed in. It didn’t seem out of the ordinary. From mid-September until mid-December is the rainy season, or winter in Bogota. The hail that fell on Calle 26 was anything but ordinary as seen in the photos below and videos below. However, the drainage system wasn’t sufficient enough to handle the water, hail, and ice. From what I’ve read, the streets department is somewhat to blame. Nevertheless, mother nature irate. During a traffic jam cars became trapped and some people escaped through their windows, walking in chest-high water. Some people suffered hypothermia. Hard to believe this is possible on the streets of Bogota. The funny thing is that when I woke up it was sunny and hot outside. However, meteorologists say that morning humidity helps creates hailstorms. Go figure. I’m just glad I wasn’t driving.
