... On this date in weather history...

In 1970... severe thunderstorms ravaged southeast Kansas
with hail that reached epic diameters of 4 to nearly 6
inches. Coffeyville Kansas was bombarded by a colossal
hailstone measuring 17.5 inches in circumference... 5.7
inches in diameter and weighing 1.67 pounds. It had been
the largest hailstone on record in the United States
until June 22... 2003... when Aurora Nebraska was hit by a
hailstone measuring 18.75 inches in circumference and 7
inches in diameter. However the Aurora event did not
'hail' as King of hailstones very long. On July
23... 2010... an even more humongous hailstone 8 inches in
diameter and weighing 1.94 pounds landed in Vivian South
Dakota.
