- Story Text: A thunderstorm with heavy rain and hail hit the Serbian capital Belgrade on Thursday (May 30), bringing most of the city to a stand-still for about two hours.
Several streets in the lower parts of Belgrade were blocked by water that surged through drains.
There were no major damages or injuries.
In Belgrade's main square, winds blew away the roofs of a few stalls and the large amount of water created problems for pedestrians and drivers.
According to the weather forecast, Belgrade can expect similar weather for the rest of the day.
Meteorologists say that 2013 is one of rainiest years in the past decades. It follows a drought that halved the harvest last year.
