How do hail storms occur in tropical zones?
Hail can fall in the tropics. It happens when it's super cold. An example is jamaica, hail can fall in places like clarendon. Hail storms in the tropics are rare but they do occur.

A violent storm originating over tropical or subtropical waters, characterized by violent rainstorms and high-velocity cyclonic winds.
Hail occurs in thunderstorms with strong updrafts and turbulent upper level winds. Inside those storm water droplets grow and are carried upwards by the updraft of the storm…. The water freezes as it is colder at higher altitudes. The chunk of ice then descends and gathers more moisture on its surface then is carried upwards again and the new layer of water freezes. As this cycle continues that hailstone grows until it is too heavy to be held up by the winds of the storm.
Hail is common in Michigan as it is in many states, especially in the American Midwest. Asking this question during the summer, the default answer would be "no longer than a w…eek ago, probably...". Additionally, Michigan is a very large area, and hail only occurs along a very narrow storm track (perhaps a few miles wide in most instances). So you need to be more specific in area, and also what you would define a "hail storm". Obviously large and excessive hail occurs less frequently than the benign pea size hail most commonly observed. You can find all hail reports of more than 1" in diameter at the link below (Storm Prediction Center) for any day going back a number of years. Just type the date in "past storm reports" and look for green or black markers over Michigan.
When something is asking you about an aftermath, they are asking you what happend after this specific thing. So, if someone asks you about what happend after the car acc…ident? You would say that they tower took it away and is going to fix it. With that said..... Q: What is the aftermath of a hailstorm? A: Many cars were dented; people were hurt; many windows and doors were cracked, broken, or took down;etc. (
All US states have some hail storms. Hail storms are more frequent in "tornado alley", which covers most states around the Mississippi river basin.
Hailstorms can happen anywhere around the world. They tend to be far less common in equatorial regions, but Japan is far enough north of the Tropic of Cancer that hail would n…ot be extraordinary. On May 6th, 2012 there was a pretty violent hailstorm in the Kanto region of Japan, with stones measuring up to 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter.
I personally heard/learned that it happens exactly where rain happens. It happens in the clouds, when rain or water droplets are frozen and they turn into ice/hail. I think it… can also happen when the rain is in the process of falling out of the clouds and the air is really really cold by the clouds and so it turns into hail/ice. :)
Hail occurs when thunderstorms get real cold, and then all that water in the clouds gets more colder. The more it gets colder, it freezes, then turns into hail. Sometimes, hai…l rain can be big as a golf ball or a handball!
A hail storm is basically a storm with hail dropping from the sky ^^ Wow, amazing wording there. and for those of you who don't know what hail is... it's frozen atmospheric… particles, such as water, dirt and pollution. and once it gets to a certain temperature in the sky, the hail is heavy enough to drop.

Hail storms mostly occur during the spring but, they can and do happen during the summer and fall and even sometimes the winter.
because getting hit by chunks of ice balls can get hurt you really bad or could kill you
I think a hail storm lasts 2 minutes at least.
