Tennis Ball Sized Hail!

Posted by Kirk

Last Tuesday marked the first Tornado of the season in Minnesota. A funnel cloud was spotted moving down I-394 toward downtown Minneapolis but luckily the storm fell apart. There had to be some serious updrafts though because very large hail was reported in the area. My friend Mike lives very close to where the funnel cloud was spotted and he snapped this photo of nearly tennis ball sized hail in his yard. Wow! Now that can do some serious damage.
