Baseball-sized hail slammed the St. Louis suburb of Maryland Heights on Saturday.

YouTube user VDOMKR documented the storm from his home, recording several videos, the longest of which is more than two minutes and appears to capture the sound of breaking glass as the hail smashes a nearby car windshield.

The sound of glass breaking can be heard at about 50 seconds and a warning siren can be heard throughout the video. The person filming describes the hail as "baseball-sized."

KSDK reported that "golf ball to teacup sized" hail sent people running for cover across the St. Louis metropolitan area during the Saturday afternoon storms.

High winds on Saturday collapsed a tent in St. Louis, injuring 200 people, according to the Associated Press, and one person was killed by a lightning strike.

The Huffington Post contacted the Maryland Height police department for comment but did not receive a reply as of press time.
