An unusual overnight storm brought a deluge of hail to areas of southeastern Arizona on October 8, 2016.
At least 2.3 inches of rain and hail measuring between 1 and 2.5 inches in diameter hit Safford late Saturday.
Well watch the deluge:
Residents shared photos on social media of holding hail in their palms or alongside a ruler.
Many woke up to find the golf ball-sized hail blanketing the ground.
There were other storms that also brought pea-sized hail to Tucson on Saturday.
But Safford bore the most severe impact in terms of precipitation.
The storm was caused by a low pressure air system pulling moisture back into the region.
Here another video:
The stormy system has since moved eastward to New Mexico.
