A few picture of the hail and storm damage NE of Independence along County Road W33. The hail sounded like hammers hitting the walls. I have holes in a few window screens and my vinyl siding from it! The neighbor's surrounding corn field was shredded. Garden plants, flowers and fruit trees were hit hard. No pears or apples left on the trees. Two huge maple trees were bent and twisted to the ground in the wind. We went to the basement when the hail started and could only see a few feet out the basement window because the wind, rain and hail were coming straight from the north in an almost "white out" condition. There was a constant rumbling sound along with the hail battering the house. My house was plastered with shredded leaves right up to the peak on the north and east sides. Still, we're thankful there was so little damage. Our buildings are still structurally sound and our family and pets weren't hurt.
