Beach goers in Siberia run for cover as a massive hail storm comes out of nowhere. Hail stones -- almost the size of eggs -- pour from the sky. The temperature suddenly dropped too, from 40 to 22 degrees celsius -- or 104 to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Some desperately huddle under a small beach umbrella. Others only have their towels for shelter. A few brave ones -- who had tried to wait out the storm in the river -- are forced to make a run for it. Despite strong wind and hail there were no reports of deaths or injuries.
