Large Hail Falls in Linn and Jones Counties

Large hail fell in portions of Jones and Linn counties last night.

Severe storms developed along a cold front across eastern Iowa. The National Weather Service says the hardest hit areas were the northeast side of Cedar Rapids and in the Quad Cities, where ping-pong ball to baseball sized hail fell in a short amount of time.

Nickel to quarter-sized hail was reported in the Anamosa area last night.
