Storm chasers Spencer Basoco and Lawrence McEwen found their windshield was no match for the giant hail falling near Stephenville, Texas, on Sunday.
“This is the biggest hail I've ever seen," one of the men says in the video, after several hailstones crack their windshield. Right on cue, another strike smashes the glass, sending shards into the vehicle.
The pieces of hail were five to six inches across and "bigger than softballs and grapefruits," he estimated.
Storm chasing can be dangerous, and even deadly, and is best left to trained experts. Storm spotting is an alternative, and the National Weather Service offers free training through its SKYWARN program.
