The World

September 04, 1985

A freak hailstorm battered Mexico City, killing one person and injuring more than 150, authorities said. A National Weather Service report, describing the storm as one of the worst in half a century, said the downtown area and nearby districts were pelted for over an hour. The storm left more than a foot of ice on streets, knocked out power and collapsed roofs and walls of a number of buildings.
