VIDEO: West Metro Area Hit With “Super-Sized” Hail

Tennis ball-sized hail and even one report of baseball-size hail shattered windshields and dented cars in parts of Wright and Carver Counties yesterday. The National Weather Service reports hail measuring 3 to 4 inches hit the Watertown and Delano areas early Monday afternoon, with the worst hail reported a few miles south of Delano. Residents posted photos showing shattered windshields and large dents in cars. The NWS had warned the hail could injure people and animals. Fortunately, no injuries were reported. A National Weather Service meteorologist said, “That’s scary-sized hail.”
