Guadalajara, Mexico's second-largest city, was covered in ice Sunday after experiencing a rare summer hailstorm.

The hailstorm was a rare event, as the city had so far been experiencing sweaty summer days with temperatures of 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Cars in the city were buried by the ice, with the hail reaching five feet in some areas of the city.

The army had to assist residents in clearing the ice. There have been no recorded injuries due to the event, but authorities did say some 200 houses were damaged by the storm. The state Civil Protection service also said there were a few cases of hypothermia.

Over 5 million people live in the greater Guadalajara area, which is located in the state of Jalisco in central Mexico.

"Then we ask ourselves if climate change is real. These are never-before-seen natural phenomena," Enrique Alfaro, the state governor of Jalisco said. "It's incredible."

The hailstorm comes after France experienced its hottest day in history last week. The United States has also been experiencing strange weather events, such as 50 tornadoes in one weekend and snow during the month of May.

Dr. Michael Mann, a climatologist and professor at Penn State University, believes that extreme weather events "are the face of climate change."
