Thursday, July 24, 2014, 7:20 PM - The deadly hail storm that pelted beach-goers near the large Siberian city of Novosibirsk on July 14, 2014 caused major damage in the city as well.

Dramatic video uploaded to YouTube shows fierce winds ripping the roof off a building.

The freak storm was a rare occurrence in Russia.

Two young girls, ages 3 and 4, died during the storm when a tree fell on a tent they were seeking shelter under.



According to the Associated Press, weather has been "unusually extreme" across Russia this summer.
