A summer thunderstorm with some kick

Hail the size of baseballs, golf balls and ping-pong balls has been reported in Wichita this evening, as a summer thunderstorm quickly fired up and began pounding the city.

So much hail fell in my neighborhood near the Delano neighborhood that it looks like it snowed on my balcony. The stones were so large - as large as golf balls and ping-pong balls, with much of it the size of marbles - they shredded the screen door and pounded the patio door so hard I was afraid it would shatter. I almost had to shout to be heard.

The thunderstorm was moving east, so much of Wichita is going to feel this storm’s wrath.
