SEVERE STORM: Golf Ball Sized Hail Hits

Warning sirens signaled the arrival of severe weather Thursday in central Iowa.

People who didn't hear the storm warnings heard the storm itself on their rooftops and decks.

Golf ball-sized hail, or even larger as was seen in Urbandale, came down hard.

Chelsey Gregerson and her neighbors say it only lasted a few minutes.

“We had gotten home maybe ten minutes beforehand and were getting the kids ready for bed and it hit pretty fast," Gregerson said. "And all of a sudden we start hearing 'thump, thump, thump'. I look out the front window and see all this hail just bouncing around in the yard. It looked like it was a miniature golf course out here."

So far, nobody has reported any significant damage in the area.
