New Mexico is no stranger to hail storms during the summer monsoon, but this one is pretty incredible. Up to 12″ of hail accumulated, making streets impassable in Santa Rosa, New Mexico on July 3.
Severe T’Storm Watch was in effect with scattered supercells as potent shear overspread the area. This particular storm was truly in incredible!
