Brutal Hail Storm Punishes Car Windshields in Colorado

By Colin Fredericson

Heavy hail damaged cars and buildings around Colorado Springs, Colorado, in the early hours on Wednesday. It was the strongest overnight hail storm in El Paso County in 20 years, according to KKTV.

The city of Fountain was hardest hit with hail that measured up to three inches in diameter, the report said. There were reports of damaged cars including cracked and broken windshields. At least one home was damaged by hail breaking the windows, KKTV reported.

This video shows the hail damage to several vehicles in Fountain.

“I bet half or three-fourths of these people are missing their back windshields or their front windshields,” said Shelly Bowen.
