'Softball-Sized' Hail Sounds Like ’Bombs Going Off' as Storm Pounds Arkansas

Parts of Arkansas were affected by large hail as severe thunderstorms moved through the region on Wednesday, June 14.

Video recorded by Lailah Spearman from her porch in Royal, Arkansas, shows large hailstones littering her front yard as loud banging can be heard.

Spearman told Storyful that she was in her living room when the hail started. “It sounded like bombs going off, and we looked outside and saw huge softball-sized hail,” she said.
