    A Hail Storm Retreats From Antwerp


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Zachary Koulermos says he was woken up by a hail storm that hit Antwerp, Belgium, on June 9. He captured this photo as the storm clouds moved north.

    Koulermos said, "After the hail subsided, it quieted down and the rain slowly went away. We were left with an amazing light storm with almost no thunder."

    Residents in the Belgian city of Antwerp were awakened at 2:30am by a fierce hail storm pounding away at their roofs. We watched lights flicker on and off in the surrounding apartments as people sleepily tried to find the genesis of the racket. The golf ball-sized hail wreaked havoc on cars, windows, trees, etc. The storm passed after 30 minutes, creating an eerie stillness with no rain. A single car alarm echoed in the distance. I took this picture as the clouds retreated North - lightning flashed furiously with no sound of thunder as the storm marched onward.
