Hail as large as softballs rained down Wednesday evening as severe thunderstorms struck parts of Texas and Oklahoma.

There were 38 reports of severe hail across Texas and Oklahoma, including near San Antonio, Fort Worth and Oklahoma City, according to the Storm Prediction Center.

Areas near San Antonio and Dallas were hit hard by the damaging, solftball sized precipitation, which broke windows and even penetrated homes’ roofs.

Yes, the hail was so big and had so much force that it came through the roof in many areas and even sheet rock on interior walls in some areas.

We were in an interior closet with our children. It was eerily still outside and then we heard a loud noise and the house shook a bit with the first big hailstone,” explained Rebecca Gilliam, a resident of Hondo, Texas.

Vehicles were left windowless after being pelted by the large stones.

The barrage was part of a huge regional storm that also saw reports of tornadoes.

The hail damage yesterday could become yet another billion-dollar weather disaster for the US,” said CNN senior meteorologist Dave Hennen. “This could be the second billion-dollar disaster this year in Texas, after the extreme Arctic outbreak back in February.

Many times the storms impact more rural areas in this part of the country, but in this case the largest hail targeted large populated areas like San Antonio, Forth Worth and Oklahoma City, so more property was damaged,” Hennen added.

Three-inch hail, which is equivalent to baseball or apples, was reported in north Fort Worth. It smashed car windows and likely caused roof damage.

It was very loud. The hail was pelting the house, hitting the windows, we were just hoping that the windows were going to hold up and wouldn’t break,” said Haley Brink, a CNN meteorologist. “At one point it was so loud that you couldn’t hear a person ten feet away from you talking without yelling.

Luckily our cars were in the garage, but looks like there were dents on the metal vents and gutters on the roof,” added Brink.

The National Weather Service office in Austin/San Antonio said this was a widespread hail event.

Other people were not so lucky, given their cars remained outside during the storm.

Another severe thunderstorm produced significant hail in the Norman, Oklahoma, area. Hail up to the size of baseballs was reported there. Look at them in Walmart… Hail is going through the roof too!

In addition to large, damaging hail, storms also produced damaging winds and a few possible tornadoes. Look at that! It is insane!

  1. Discover Vol 19 No1 “Snowballs from Space!” Look it up! NASA then banned private use of satellites that could see those space snowballs. They could be seeding storms causing hail to reach larger proportions than what is normally expected!

    • As a victim of one of these storms, still sitting here with broken windows, I’d love to see a link if you have one. I have to know where I should direct my wrath.

  2. Well, the hail damage guys, and insurance companies will be busy.
    Those were monster-sized hailstones. Those would kill small livestock. Been thinking about a steel roof myself.

  3. Those Ice balls need to examine to see if they have been nucleated, because when I see them bouncing like golf balls, something appears to be amiss.

  4. And here in the Selkirk Range of NE Washington State, 49′ north latitude, yesterday saw 76’F/24C on the mercury thermometer in the shade on the north-facing side of the woodshed. Today it said 78’F/25C when I checked an hour ago. The last frost here used to be in June, and the old apple tree out front is trying to flower and there AREN’T ANY BEES out yet. Just like last year! Not expecting many apples again in Fall…

    CO2 at 421ppm on top of Moana Loa observatory now. And what was the climate 3.5 million years ago the last time it was this high? Anybody want to make a bet on how all this is going to turn out?

    Actually, I think we’re all gambling at this point…

    • I saw some non honey bees hitting my apple, apricot, and pear. We get a frost sometimes in May/June. Up in the mountains.
      I still have hopes for something this year. Maybe a Bartlett pear or Granny Smith apple again. Had my first apple last year.
      I have to spray some malathion each year. Very lightly. Also Sevin spray on non-fruit deciduous trees. Lots of bugs, moth, horn worm activity coming up. Those big pretty moths pop out the horn worms. Put a light out, and a bucket of water below light. Kills alot of them before they lay eggs on your garden.
