Community littered with golf ball-sized hail

ADAMS COUNTY, Ohio (Brad Underwood) -- People living in parts of Adams County were some of the first to be hit Wednesday afternoon.
Heavy rain and hail moved through the county fast knocking down trees and power lines.  In Peebles and near West Union, cars and homes were damaged by the hail.  Lisa Neubauer sent Local 12 some of her pictures of the damage at the GE test facilities in Peebles.  She tells Local 12's Rob Braun lots of car windows were damaged as well.
On Ralston Road trees must be cut and removed off of power lines before crews can restore power to more than 500 residents after the storm came through Adams County.

The streets are covered with leaves.  Snow plows and street sweepers had to be called out to brush away debris on State Route-125.  It's mid May, but rather hard to find green grass outside Renee Ramsey's house.  Her yard is covered with ping pong and golf ball size hail.

Ramsey captured some video with her cell phone.  In a picture you can see a wall cloud in the distance.  Five hours after the hail fell, ice blocks still remain.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office has not reported any injuries.
