A shocking video has shown the streets of Delhi covered in white hailstones, with some Indians saying it is a sign of the end of the world.
In the clip, ice covers the roads and has settled despite sweltering 45C (113F) temperatures forecast for this coming weekend.
Cars and scooters leave tracks in the thick hailstones and stunned people stop to record the spectacle on their phones.
The video has been watched more than 170,000 times after being shared by Indian journalist @AdityaRajKaul on Twitter.
He tweeted: “Hailstorm today in Delhi after a sudden weather change. This is not normal at all.”
Commenting on the post, one woman wrote: “2020 just getting weirder. Apocalyptic!”
Referencing the doomsday thriller 2012, another person said: “In 2012 movie the same thing is shown…snowing in Delhi…Indicating world coming to an end.”
“All movies are becoming reality,” they added.
Another person tweeted: “The same thing was shown in Day After Tomorrow movie and after that ice storm hit most parts of Europe, Canada, and USA…”
Sounding baffled, a viewer tweeted: “Snow in Delhi in May normally Delhi have 40-45 even higher temperatures in the month of May. 2020 is really weird.”
The storm happened at around 6pm local time and just minutes after a dust storm passed, ndtv.com reports.
