Here is an article I happened to come across from the Himalayas - giant hailstone event - quite an interesting read:

Would have liked to have seen the footage of that storm!  The poor souls probably had nowhere to take cover and just got pelted.  Natgeo hopefully will document their findings and with time produce something for television.
