The Largest Hailstone in US History

The largest hailstone in U.S. history is a whopper!  It measured 8 inches in diameter and had an 18 ⅝ inch circumference.  It dropped from the sky in Vivian South Dakota on July 23, 2010.  It weighed nearly 2 pounds.  That’s roughly 4 times the weight of a baseball!!!   Glad it didn’t hit anyone 😉
