Extreme hailstorm hits Yuma, Colorado

An extreme hailstorm hit Yuma, Colorado on Monday, May 20, 2024, causing massive damage to homes and cars. Hail accumulation was so thick that some cars ended up stuck in hail drifts.

An unusually intense hailstorm with hail stones the size of a softball hit the town of Yuma (population 3 500) on Monday, May 20, 2024, wreaking havoc on homes, cars, and power lines, and plunging the area into chaos.

Yuma was already on edge with tornado and flash flood warnings in place when the storm struck.

The intensity of the storm was so severe that some vehicles became trapped in thick drifts of hail.

Firefighter JJ Unger, recalling the mayhem to FOX31, described the situation as chaotic as he and fellow firefighters were called into action amidst the worsening conditions.

Unger painted a stark picture of the havoc unleashed by the hail, with visibility reduced to almost zero as crews struggled to navigate through the deluge. His own truck, a Ford F-150, took a beating, its windshield battered by the relentless onslaught.

In the aftermath, shattered windows and debris littered the streets, with vehicles skidding off roads and even livestock caught in the storm’s path.
