Afternoon hailstorm in Volta Redonda - Rio de Janeiro - Brazil

In the region where I live (Volta Redonda is in the State of Rio de Janeiro in Brazil) , it is quite normal to have a tropical rain/ thunderstorm in the late afternoon after a warm day. Usually these storms last anywhere from 15 minutes to 1.5 hours and can be very intense. It is not often that there is also hail (granizo) involved, like yesterday... Giovanna, my 6 y/o stepdaughter saw this for the first time...
