Hail Report Information
Station Number: IN-CK-6
Station Name: Charlestown 2.6 N
Date: 3/2/2012 3:40 PM
Submitted 3/03/2012 10:48 AM
Taken at registered location: True
Notes: We had 4 inch hail stones in the yard. The area by Highway 3 may have been the beginning of one of the tornadoes that hit this area. Three hours after the storm the area by the road was still covered in hailstones the size of golf balls. I found at least five hailstones that were six inches. Four of those were in a line - no more than four inches apart - by a fence. One tree was uprooted and then it looks like the tornado began topping trees.
