GEORGETOWN (KXAN) — A hail storm with stones the size of baseballs ripped through Georgetown Wednesday night. Now, hundreds of people who live there are assessing the damage to their homes and vehicles.

The hail hit especially the northwestern portions of Georgetown near Sun City and Serenada. And the National Weather Service used the KXAN photo in this story, which was taken in Georgetown just before 1 a.m., to confirm baseball-sized hail. That’s hail that reaches 2.75 inches in diameter.

KXAN meteorologists say this storm system was an alone severe thunderstorm that erupted late Tuesday night, grew in intensity, unleashed its massive hailstones over Williamson County, and then weakened and disappeared over northern Bastrop County.

Storms rolled through the Brazos Valley Wednesday, bringing strong winds and up to golf-ball-sized hail.

BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas — People living in the Brazos Valley were hit with two rounds of severe weather Wednesday that brought hail, damaging winds, and even a brief tornado warning.

The storms moved through Central Texas first, hitting the Waco and Temple area before pushing through the Brazos Valley. People reported seeing up to golf ball-sized hail in North Bryan. Here at the KAGS station near downtown Bryan, the hail was about ping-pong ball-sized.

This resulted in reports of downed trees and power lines. Some people living in Brazos County and surrounding counties reported power outages and damage to their property; including the collapsing of Dixie Chicken’s roof off of Northgate.
