Lubbock takes cover as hailstones pound city

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

It only took a split second for a light rain to transform into a blinding hail storm Monday night, forcing drivers to scramble and find cover.

Mariana Mahon and Robert White were hauling furniture and knew they needed to act fast. The two pulled into the Stripes on US-87 and 82nd Street.

"We're trying to keep the furniture dry and not get beat by the hail," White said.

Just after six, the awning at the Stripes looked like a parking lot, with 10 to 20 cars taking shelter.

"We caught wind that it was moving this way, so we pulled under here real quick," White said.

The biggest hailstones were reported northeast of I-27.

Residents there saw tennis and baseball-sized pieces falling.

Dents can be fixed and windshields repaired, but fortunately, these residents were able to find shelter from the storm.

    Trump, who won election despite facing more than a dozen accusations of sexual misconduct himself, is discounting accusations of sexual misconduct against Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore, telling voters not to support his "liberal" rival.
