As spring turns to summer, North Texas is entering into severe weather season, according to the city of McKinney. As a hail storm rolled through the area Sunday, some McKinney residents were able to capture photos and videos of the storm.
Many residents took to social media showing the size of hailstones and damage caused by the storm. Some residents saw hail the size of a golfball.

While many residents are in search of roof-repair companies to fix hail damage, the McKinney Police Department is warning residents to be cautious when picking a roofer. MPD provided a link to questions you should ask of any roofing company before allowing them to work on your property.
If you need roof repair this #MondayMorning, please make sure you are hiring a reputable roofer, not a con man. Be informed. Don't become a victim. #Hail #dfwwx https://t.co/eFYPjvJaJI … pic.twitter.com/VpnPfwZYBP

However, not all areas of the city experienced damage, including The McKinney National Airport.
“Luckily, we didn’t see any hail materialize at the airport so no reported damage,” MNA Director Kenneth Carley said in an email to Community Impact Newspaper.
The city of McKinney does not have any information on hail damage to report at this time, Denise Lessard, communications and media manager for the city, said in an email.
