Hail storm Sunday captured by viewers

The storm developed around 4 p.m. and brought some heavy rain, gusty winds and hail, primarily to Belle Chasse.

BELLE CHASSE, La. — There wasn’t a lot of rainy weather this weekend but what there was made its mark on the area.

Sunday in Belle Chasse a strong storm brought hail reportedly somewhere between marble-size and golf ball size.

Viewers sent in photos and videos of the storm that formed around 4 p.m. Sunday. Some severe thunderstorm warnings were issued.

“The storm brought heavy rain, high wind gusts and hail to the area,” said WWL-TV Meteorologist Alexandra Cranford.

Rain chances haven’t been high and will be low this week but, given that it is already nearly summer-like temperatures, storms that develop can become strong quickly.
