The violent hail storm that hit the Haut-Jura was unusual to say the least in the middle of July.
Twenty centimeters of hail
In a video posted on Facebook, Meteo Franc-comtoise reports that nearly 20 cm (8 inches) of hail fell late Friday afternoon, especially in the town of Morbier.
This follows the storm of hail that fell on a part of the Gironde on Sunday and Monday, destroying 2,000 hectares of vineyards and hundreds of hectares of market garden and cereal crops.
