Giant Hailstones

A Giant hailstone in South Dakota smashes US record, ahem, hailed as the biggest ever.

What’s more, the man who found the ginormous icy object said that it had melted a bit while it was evaluated.

America’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration committee declared that the hailstone, found in the town of Vivian on July 23, measures a whopping eight inches in diameter and weighs a hefty one pound, 15 ounces.

The committee says the South Dakota ice chunk breaks records set by hailstones discovered in Nebraska and Kansas.

Ranch hand Leslie Scott says the hailstone was about three inches bigger when he found it. Scott says he put it in the freezer but that he couldn't prevent some melting because of an hours-long power outage that followed the storm.
