Severe storms leave behind damage across the state, Kingfisher hit hard with hail

KINGFISHER, Okla. - Baseball-sized hail stormed into the town of Kingfisher Thursday afternoon.

Many cars had broken windshields, while homes and businesses received busted out windows.

The streets were covered with tree branches and flooded waters.

The Kingfisher Emergency Management told NewsChannel 4 the damage was scattered throughout the area.

One resident said she saw the hail hitting her car from a store window.

She said the back windshield glass started to buckle, while hail of all shapes and sizes dropped several holes in her windshield.

People in the area say they've never seen anything like it.

“Before it hit the ground it was a lot bigger,” said Cory Hendrix.

“A lot of them were baseball size hail, that’s the biggest I’ve ever seen,” said Shawn Maggard.

Police are urging residents to be on the lookout for roofing contractors going door-to-door soliciting.

Officers say you should ask to see a current City of Kingfisher, Solicitor Permit.

Each person going door-to-door must have this. If they cannot produce it, contact Kingfisher Police at 405-375-4311.
