Golfball-Sized Hail Strafes Cheyenne, Wyoming

July 14, 2011

A severe thunderstorm spawned funnel clouds and strafed southeast Wyoming with golfball-sized hail.

In Cheyenne, the hail shredded trees, dented cars and damaged a handful of private planes at the airport.

The Wyoming Tribune Eagle reports the hail also plugged up storm drains while the capital city got almost an inch and a half of rain.

Crews plowed hail from the streets into mounds 3 and 4 feet high.

Funnel clouds were spotted east of Cheyenne but authorities said they heard no reports of tornado damage.
