A hailstorm in Bolivia caused flash flooding in the city of Sucre on 4 January.

The hailstorm lasted only thirty minutes, but was enough to block flood drains and flood streets in the city, sweeping away some vehicles and market stalls. People caught out in the open during the flash flood took hold of nearby lamposts or trees to withstand the waves of water.

Four people were killed, at least six were missing, and seven were reported to be injured.
