Now for the weather with Garbielle Parker. There is a record breaking hailstormin Tulsa, Oklahoma. The stones are grapefriut sized and are extremely hazerdous. Let's check in with Olivia Ouimette who is out on the field.
This hailstorm is a firece one with record sized hail stones. Hail is created when supercooled raindroplets collect in a very strong cloud and the other water adds on to the suppercolled water droplets creating a layered effect.
Woah! The current wind speed is 60 mph. Everyone take cover and stay inside! Be sure to take shelter and if you can, park cars under a covered area.
Great idea, Gabby! Hail occurs most commonly May through September and Doppler Radar can be used detect upcoming hailstorm
I am with this man whose car just got totaled by the hailstorm. This is a reminder to everyone watching that hail's main danger is the damage it does to the community and the injuries it can cause to a person.
A hailstorm can cause great finsncial loss as homes are heavily damaged. Make sure you have insurance on your house and car.That's all for channel 4 today. Tune is next time and remember to get inside and stay safe.
