Hailstorm- Starkville, MS

These are pictures of the supercell that moved through Starkville on Wednesday April 20th.  Hail stones between 1 and 2 inches in diameter fell (quarter to golfball size with some larger), along with torrential rain, dangerous cloud to ground lightning, and well defined rotation.  I'll also try and post video of it soon.

This actually looked like a funnel cloud behind the trees.  It was clearly rotating but we could not tell if it was on the ground.
This is the hail on the ground seen from the second story window.  It had melted a little bit, but most of those are still about the size of golfballs.
