The video footage shows a river of hail running through the desert following a storm on November 16, 2015. It has been named as the ‘sand river’. As per the online reports, heavy rains over the past few weeks triggered floods that killed dozens of people in Iraq and caused widespread damage in Egypt, Israel, Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
In arid environments, it is common for flash floods to travel rapidly downstream to areas which usually do not receive any rainfall. So, the river appears in the downstream area despite any local indication of the rainfall. Reportedly, in this case, the illusion is compounded by the fact that a significant hail has fallen upstream.




What looks like sand is thousands and thousands of floating hailstones. Hail is nothing but frozen rain which pours down in the form of small pebbles of snow. Hail storms are common in hilly areas, but a phenomenon like a flowing river of hail is rare. However, there is no information on its re-arrival or any news of such past incidents.
