It was raining hailstones in parts of Malaysia yesterday evening, with falling ice filmed in areas including Selangor, Perak, and Kedah. 

Several people reported seeing the stones falling onto roofs, in their backyard, and on vehicles during the heavy downpour at around 6pm. There is still no word from the Malaysian Meteorological Department since the rare phenomenon gripped locals. 

Lumps of ice in various sizes were seen pelting down from the sky. Fortunately, most of them were relatively small and unlikely to cause significant property damage.

“It’s now raining hail in Taman Bukit Cheras,” the patriotic Twitter page @MyNegara wrote about the residential area. The last time Malaysia had hail was in May

“It’s raining hail at Taman Tun Perak… gais,” @Izzulzarif97 said.

“Hail storm at Changlun today,” @Muhsin_J shared.
