Hail Slams Car Windshield in Southwest Oklahoma

Hail pounded the car windshield of Jake Nea, a self-described novice storm chaser, in the town of Roosevelt, Oklahoma, on Sunday night, October 10, as severe storms blew through the state and produced several tornadoes.

Video taken by Nea from inside the vehicle shows large cracks forming on the glass as it is struck by the hail. A photo tweeted by Nea on Monday shows the extent of the damage. “That was a new windshield,” Nea wrote.

A few hours earlier, the National Weather Service (NWS) had issued a tornado warning for Roosevelt and nearby areas, saying tennis-sized hail was possible.
