Tell me when I should be worried

Because I don't think they sell umbrellas strong enough...

Tampa, FL (AHN) - A mysterious 18-inch ice chunk fell from the sky and crushed the upper portion of a car belonging to a man from Florida. The roof of the Ford Mustang, owned by Andre Ravage, 20, was crushed down to its seats on Sunday.

Ravage's neighbor Raymond Rodriguez was changing a tire when the strange chunk fell from the sky. "I was scared," AP quotes Rodriguez as saying who was only a foot away. "It's crazy, man."

The Federal Aviation Administration is speculating if the chunk fell off from some plane's lavatory. However, the ice did not have a blue tint meaning it was not from a plane.

According to the National Weather Service, the conditions in Tampa are not suited for the formation of large balls of ice, known as megacryometeors. However, no one was hurt in the incident.
