Reuters: MADRID In a powerful hailstorm that wrecked devastation in Catalonia, northeastern Spain, a 20-month-old baby girl died, according to officials on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, hailstones the size of a fist and up to 10 centimetres (4 inches) in diameter fell on a region near the town of La Bisbal d'Emporda.
Around 50 additional individuals were hurt by them, largely with broken bones and bruises, according to station TV3.
Musician Sicus Carbonell, who captured footage of the storm's damaging aftermath in Castell d'Emporda,
a neighbouring hotel where his band was performing on a canvas-covered patio when everyone was forced to flee, stated, "People started screaming and hiding."
According to meteorological service Meteocat, the hail in Catalonia was the largest ever recorded in 20 years. On Wednesday, several areas of the area were still on storm alert.
