According to reports, The city of Colorado Springs just got struck with aggressive hail that persisted for hours, damaging cars and homes and forcing locals to help one another to remove heaping mounds of ice. According to a resident Krystal Taylor said the hail started Thursday afternoon and was strongest around 11 p.m.

Excerpt From CNN:
“Being in our house, all we could hear were these loud smacks all around our home from (this) tennis-ball size hail being thrown at our house from above,” she said. “It was loud crashing all around the house. Lightning, thunder and hail can be a scary mix.”Locals headed outside to alleviate the storm’s effects, once it was safe. “Our neighbors shoveled and worked together to get the hail out of the streets so people in the neighborhood could drive safely,” Taylor said.
