Hail stones the size of golf balls and small baseballs smashed car windows west of Detroit Lakes this afternoon.

A half-dozen cars in the SJE-Rhombus parking lot on County Road 6 had windows broken out by the hail stones.


The storm was freakish in that one car would have serious damage, with multiple broken windows, deep dents and even hanging interior lights -- while one next to it seemed to have sustained little damage.
