SAO PAULO (AP) — A storm has brought marble-sized hail to the city of Sao Paulo, leaving some streets flooded or coated in white in Brazil's largest city.

The Center for Emergency Management said Monday the storm, which brought 0.4 inch (10 centimeters) of moisture, broke a dry spell that caused historically low levels at the main dams that supply water to Sao Paulo.

Residents in Sao Paulo wondered at the ice balls that decorated their yards and gardens even up to early Monday. Some told local news media that their children had never seen hail or played with ice before Sunday's storm.

Many Sao Paulo residents struggled to keep their balance on the ice and the storm stranded cars in some neighborhoods.
