Large hail pounds area

Thursday, June 22, 2006

The severe storms that hit northeastern Clay County Monday afternoon dropped some monster-sized hail on the Harmony area, according to local observers.

Harmony resident Robert McClelland (left) retrieved an irregular three-inch hailstone from his yard around 2:40 p.m. Monday. He said the hail lasted about 10 minutes.

Another Harmony resident, who declined to give her name, claimed to have found a six-inch hailstone on her property. The National Weather Service issued severe thunderstorm warnings for portions of Clay and surrounding counties Monday.
