An Atlas Jet plane made an emergency landing Thursday at the Istanbul Atatürk International Airport after a hailstorm caused severe damaged to its exterior.

Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah.

The footage showed that the plane landed successfully at the airport thanks to the experienced pilot after it ran into the summer storm and hail cracked its windshield.

Heavy rainfall disrupted the evening rush hour traffic, stranding vehicles in flooded streets. Delays were reported at Istanbul's main airport as some planes were diverted to other airports.

Turkish authorities temporarily closed down the Eurasia Tunnel, which connects Istanbul's Asian and European sides under the Bosporus strait, as a precaution.
It was the second time in 10 days that heavy rain had inundated the streets of Istanbul and wreaked havoc in the sprawling metropolis.
