Humans protect themsleves from hazardous exposure of hail and sleet is............. That is the symbols used by meteorologists --> Sleet is caused mostly in winter storms. The largest hailstone ever found weighed 768g (1.7 lb.) in Kansas, U.S.A in 1970. It was about the size of a melon or large a grapefruit. Hail is most common in areas with warm summers.

Also stay in a safe place like your house, relatives house, friends house, buildings, etc. Like not outside stay inside or you would be ingured. Sleet: Hail: Hail is mostly caused in summer storms.Updrafts in the storm lift the rain to the upper, colder regions of the storm clouds, causing the rain to freeze, each time that happens the hail becomes bigger.During larger storms, especially those that spawn tornadoes, the updrafts are stronger and can cause much larger hail. Sleet forms when a partially melted snowflakes or raindrop turns back into ice as it falls through the air. Sleet is usually tiny clear ice pellets. Where is sleet more common? Sleet is most common in the winter time. Sleet is frozen rain drops so it would be like where it snow. Sleet mostly happens during a thunderstorm in the winter.
