The 5-million strong city of Mexico, Guadalajara, has been experiencing temperatures of 31 degrees Celcius this summer and on Sunday was hot by a freak hailstorm.
'I’ve never seen such scenes in Guadalajara, and you ask if climate change is real” said the state governor, Enrique Alfaro.
ITV News reported some streets were covered in 2 metres of ice with videos showing cars completely buried.
