TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Monday’s storms brought hail as big as golf balls to Highlands County, according to residents who saw the damage first hand.
A Lake Placid resident said on Twitter that the golf ball-sized hail went through their window during the storm.
“We are okay,” the resident said. “But I was panicking the whole time. I was watching Hail as big as golf balls fly through our window.”
Sebring resident Dave Holland recorded video of the hail as it hit his car in a parking lot.
“Ice balls are bouncing on my car,” he said. “They’re the size of a quarter.”
Photos posted on the Highlands County Board of County Commissioners Facebook page showed other signs of damage, including a car with a broken windshield in Sebring.
The county also showed photos of downed tree limbs in Avon Park in the storm’s aftermath.
