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.

One driver experienced hail damage to their windshield while driving down SH 121 in McKinney.

This person captured a video of the hail coming down during the storm.

Another person shows the aftermath of the storm as hailstones piled up in front yards.

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.

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.

This story will continue to be updated as more information is released.
