In May 2010, YouTube user “beatlesfanxxl” uploaded a jaw-dropping moment that went viral with nearly seven million views.
It was late spring in Oklahoma City, and he and his family were watching a nasty storm pass through. You can only imagine their shock and horror when suddenly the dark, gloomy skies opened up — and the family watched in sheer awe as golf ball-sized hail came pouring from the sky and plummeting into their backyard pool.
“This was the most insane hail storm or storm in general I have ever seen!” he wrote on YouTube. “Sorry about all of the oh my Gods.
I was just in shock.” For the following four minutes, the video captures a massive hailstorm that is so severe you can barely see the bright aquamarine color of the pool water through the crashing balls of ice. “I’ve never seen anything like this!” the cameraman shouts.
Did you know? On July 11, 1990, a severe thunderstorm rocked Colorado, dropping golf ball to baseball sized hail. At the time, it was called the worst hailstorm in American history.
