Rain, hail hit parts of Kansas City metro Wednesday morning

KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Some people in the Kansas City metro had a wakeup call from Mother Nature — hailstones bouncing off cars and roofs.

Morning hail that blew through Johnson and Wyandotte counties came in various sizes. Photos show some hail that appeared to be as large as golf balls.

In Kansas City Kansas’ Turner neighborhood, Isaias Mejia and his son Brayden Baptist couldn’t believe what they saw early Wednesday morning.

It was raining as they were driving from their home. Before they knew it, hail was falling. The stones of ice that were hitting their cars looked like large rocks.

“As we turned the corner, we were just getting pounded. We actually stopped and parked underneath a tree because we didn’t want our vehicle to get too damaged,” Mejia said.

The father and son don’t believe their cars or family home were damaged. They shared video with FOX4 showing the chaos that broke out while the hailstones fell.

“There was this weird cloud rolling in. It was scary-looking. I was thinking — it’s going to be a hard rain or something on the way. We started driving and it started hailing out of nowhere,” Baptist said.
