Severe thunderstorms are officially defined as storms that are capable of producing hail that is an inch or larger or wind gusts over 58 mph. Hail this size can damage property such as plants, roofs and vehicles. Do you know how to report hail size? Use a ruler to measure the largest stone (before it melts). Or, you can use this guide to help measure based on common items. The best way to report hail size is a picture of the hail stone next to a ruler or one of these objects.
ALWAYS remember to safely gather the hail stones. Don't put yourself at risk. For weather information, check out:
