Amazing video of hail stones the size of baseballs!Baseball size hailstones fall from thunderstorms at speeds of at least 75 mph, so it’s no wonder you can see the magnitude of smashed windshields and structural damage,†said Jonathan Erdman, senior meteorologist for weather.com.Italy-Hail-672x372.jpg

That is amazing, is it very unusual to get that kind of hail in Italy?

Pretty unusual for Italy but in the USA Hail causes about $1 billion in damage to crops and property each year in the U.S. according to NOAA estimates Some individual hailstorms striking cities can inflict over $1 billion in damage alone, such as one that hit St. Louis on April 10, 2001.
