NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM) – It was a noisy night Thursday, Feb. 25 in parts of North Texas as hail fell from the sky in the 8:00 p.m. hour.

“This was loud coming down on the roof,” Moom Sinha told CBS 11.

People from Anna to Frisco to McKinney to The Colony shared video and pictures of the hail that was at least marble-sized or a little larger in places.

“Got a good dose of hail around 8:45 in McKinney,” said Deb Arndt. “Ranging from marble to boulder size. Not as big as a ping pong ball, but large enough to make some dents in our car!”
