The many residents of Abuja were greeted to a shower of hailstones on Friday, SaharaReporters reports.
The hail, which fell in some parts of the city, caused cracks on some windscreens. It also led to traffic gridlock, as motorists were forced to park and stay in their vehicles, while the rainfall and hailstones continued.
Available shelter, such as under trees and roofed parking spaces, became hotspots for vehicle owners while the rainfall of hail lasted.
