Aug 06, 2019 - St. Paul Pioneer Press (Minnesota)

Tennis ball-sized hail has shattered windshields and dented cars in parts of the Minneapolis area.

The National Weather Service reports hail measuring 3 to 4 inches hit the Watertown and Delano areas early Monday afternoon, with the worst hail reported a few miles south of Delano.

National Weather Service meteorologist Brent Hewett says "That's scary-sized hail."

4 inch hail was measured in Delano earlier today! Incredible. https://t.co/AAetpWqLQbpic.twitter.com/NO5aJJMar7
