Very large hail leaves a trail of destruction across parts of Kansas

Several severe thunderstorms rolled through Colorado and Kansas Thursday afternoon, August 10, 2017. The storms produced strong winds and very large hail, leaving a trail of damage. The worst affected were Kansas’ WaKeeney and Trego counties.

Hail as large as grapefruit was reported in Trego County while baseball- and softball-sized stones hit WaKeeney. 90% of the vehicles in a parking lot in WaKeeney were damaged by the hail, and nearby homes had window and siding damage, NWS reported.

“It was kind of armageddon out there for a while,” state trooper Tod Hileman said from north-central Kansas. Vehicles and houses had windows knocked out by large hail, thick fog dropped visibility to zero for a while and numerous crashes were reported on hail-covered roads, he said, as reported by The Wichita Eagle.
