Severe storms bring golf ball-sized hail to Texas

iStock/Thinkstock(DENTON, Texas) — A severe storm brought gigantic hail to parts of Oklahoma and Texas on Sunday.

The storm also delivered heavy rain and winds as high as 65 miles per hour in some areas in the Southern Plains.

 

 

Social media users posted images of shattered car windows and comparisons of the hail next to oranges and golf balls.

The largest hail report was from Denton, Texas, where residents reported softball-sized hail of about 4.25 inches in diameter.

 

 

There were 70 reports of severe weather on Sunday, with about 57 hail reports across the Southern Plains.

 

 

The storm is now moving east toward to the Mississippi River valley, spanning from Mississippi to Indiana. That area will be at an enhanced risk for severe storms on Monday, with very large hail and damaging winds possible.
